Session V:

Aggressively Passive: Employing Passive Systems for Load Reduction

Properly designed, a building captures existing site resources such as light, wind, and solar radiation to provide for the comfort and needs of occupants. Passive systems work in concert with site resources to manage building energy demand through design. This session will build upon the concepts introduced in Sessions 3 and 4 and explore a holistic strategy for designing passive systems.
