nZEB Made Easy – a Fabric First Approach: Designing Nearly Zero Energy Buildings, Working Towards 2020 in the Republic of Ireland
The Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD - recast) 2010, seeks to reduce energy dependency and greenhouse gas emissions through the lowering of building's energy consumption to an optimal level and, the use of renewable sources to produce the resulting low energy demand. This CPD looks at how buildings use and lose energy and how a fabric first approach combined with careful detailing, can make the transition to nZEB compliance very easy. This seminar will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand and define what nZEB is and why it is needed
- Understand nZEB in the Irish context
- Understand the key changes for Irish dwelling design and Part L compliance
- Understand how to explore how buildings use and lose energy
- Understand and be able to discuss the performance gap
- Understand how to investigate the impacts of thermal bridging
- Understand how a fabric first approach reduces energy usage and achieves nZEB compliance
