Advancements in window and wall technology

Windows are one of the most important features of a building envelope, allowing us to maintain a connection with the outdoors while we remain comfortable and safe indoors. The window industry has been challenged to deliver see-through products that provide energy efficiency, occupant comfort, safety, beauty and low maintenance. This session explores the elements of window design for energy performance and looks at advancements that have been made to meet ENERGY STAR® target levels for windows and doors.

High performance wall assembly and details

Wall assembly details like corners, deck connections, fastening schedules, tapes, window bucks, furring strips and cladding attachment present challenges. Our presenter is a nationally recognized green design and building expert who set out to determine if there was a simple high performance wall system to resolve these challenges in new construction, remodeling and retrofit situations. Join us to hear the results of his extensive pursuit. He’ll walk through each layer of wall assembly and share lessons learned, as well as the strategies and materials behind this new approach he’s dubbed the 'awesome wall.’

Energy efficiency in food processing- energy efficient refrigeration

We show how minimizing air infiltration through doorways in industrial refrigeration storage spaces reduces sensible and latent loads, cutting costs during the cooling and defrost cycles. Learn the driving forces behind air infiltration, as well as how to reduce it. We examine strip curtains and air curtains, and discuss how to calculate flow rates and energy savings. In addition, we show you how to evaluate defrost frequency and dwell time through careful observation and monitoring—a crucial step not to be missed when evaluating energy efficiency at your facility.

LED outdoor lighting: barriers and solutions

High performance LED outdoor lighting technologies are a cost effective energy savings opportunity often offering 50 percent or more savings relative to previously installed systems. Plus, they last longer and offer maintenance and operational benefits. Our expert presenter will highlight three key challenges of outdoor street and area LED lighting conversions in the public sector—financial, technical and regulatory—and describe proven solutions to overcome these obstacles. She’ll share information, best practices and key findings from the Better Buildings Outdoor Lighting Accelerator, a DOE initiative that focuses on this vital public service and works with dozens of municipalities to accelerate the adoption of LED outdoor lighting.
