Paving the Path to High Performance Green Buildings - World Standards Day 2013

Published on

Keynote speech - Incredible positive energy and net zero carbon projects are being successfully delivered in an economically viable way today – here and there. They are not even close to mainstream – ……….Yet..



We have much work to do, all over the world.



While all of the answers are not clear, it is clear that innovation is required, and then finding a way to drive the best ideas, processes, practices into standard practice – via Standards – is absolutely CRUCIAL. This is what I mean by “paving the path”. Pioneers make their own path, fast followers make their way through the bumps, and mud. However, the vast majority of people, the industry players that build, retrofit, and maintain the places where we live, work and play – they don’t like bumps and mud, and new paths. They can’t afford to get stuck in the mud. They need standard, repeatable, economically viable practices that scale.



If you remember one thing from this session today, remember this: We both forge a better path through innovation, AND we must PAVE the path – in order to achieve sustainability in our buildings, homes and communities. Standards help us pave the path.

Paving the Path to High Performance Green Buildings - World Standards Day 2013

  1. 1. Paving the Path to HighPerformance Green Buildingsand Smart CitiesVP High Performance Green Buildings SolutionsMelissa O’MaraMelissa.omara@schneider-electric.comhttp://www.linkedin.com/in/melissaomaraTwitter: melissaomara, Schneider_Green
  2. 2. The Energy challenge The facts The need vs Energy demand CO2 emissions to By 2050 avoid dramatic climate Electricity by 2030 changes by 2050 Source: IEA 2007 vs. 1990 level we want to help address this challenge 2
  3. 3. The Energy Challenge and the Cities● Cities today are of the earth surface● Cities will grow from 50% to of world population by 2050● Cities are of global CO2 emissions● of city growth will be in new economies the battle will be won, or lost, in the cities 3
  4. 4. We must enable high performance greenbuildings & smart cities for our future Future Carbon Neutral buildings, micro grids, eco-cities Net Zero Energy & Positive Energy buildings Connect to Electrical Vehicles Use renewable energy Today Use of BIM and IPD smart and green come together to deliver “bright green” buildings Focus on efficiency and operational performance over time (LEED EB:O&M) Focus on environmental impact of construction Past (green design) Time 4
  5. 5. What do we mean by Net-Zero?● “A Net Zero Energy Building (NZEB) is a building with greatly reduced operational energy needs. In such a building, sufficient efficiency gains will have been made such that the remaining portion of the building’s energy needs could be offset by renewable technologies. An NZEB should have no adverse energy or environmental impacts associated with its operation . In other words, an NZEB should be highly energy efficient and capable of producing at least as much energy over the course of a year as it draws from the utility grid.” Paul Torcellini, PhD, PE, and Shanti Pless, LEED AP,● Across all NZEB definitions and classifications, one design rule remains constant: reduce energy demand to the lowest possible level first, then address energy supply. 5

  17. 17. LEED certification today has not consistentlydelivered operational performance Measured Losses | Measured Savings e or Certified m cted g in pe Silver a v ex S n s Gold-Platinum th a les cted g in pe a v ex S an th These buildings use more energy than the code baseline!

  18. 18. You can’t manage performance if you don’t measure (actual) usage (and compare to stds and design goals)Measured evaluation is based on real life and takes into account implementationshortcomings such as •Incorrect settings •actual operation of the building •actual behaviour and number of occupants •Indicators are evaluated by measurements or by calculations based on measurements 18
  19. 19. Energy Benchmarks Are WidelyAvailable and lack common metric STAR RATING BUILDIN FOR GS Energy kWh/ sq m/ year Performance Index: Name of the Building Category of Building Type : Climatic Zone : Connected Load : Build up Area : : : Products Buildings Systems Components 19
  20. 20. Certification processes and designs inEU countries lack common metric 20
  21. 21. …or common agreed calculation: the EUtoday uses kWh/m2/year, but not as wewould define it It looks so simple , however : • Only 5 uses = HVAC + Light + Hot Water • Not the actual consumption but only estimated values on conventional use •In Primary Equivalent Energy : who knows ? Adequate for awareness and Insulation and other passive EE measures , but is it really driving operational efficiency and improvement ? 21
  22. 22. Sounds like a problem… or anopportunity…. For standards! 22
