On the face of it, building façades simply provide a barrier to protect occupants from outside weather conditions, helping to keep the inside space at a comfortable temperature and providing daylight. However, from an energy and environmental design perspective, façades can be highly complex systems. Today's design standards require that they balance and optimize a wide range of often-conflicting considerations including daylight, shading, acoustics, solar gains, thermal insulation, ventilation, and even electricity generation.

In this webinar, we will discuss various simple and complex façade systems and show you how to model their performance in DesignBuilder EnergyPlus. The webinar will cover:

  *   Façade systems and integrated façade design requirements.
  *   Modeling of simple facades with glazing, shading and vents.
  *   Dynamic shading, airflow control windows, and dynamic glazing including thermochromic windows and Saint-Gobain's electrochromic SageGlass systems.
  *   Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPVs), Double Skins, and other advanced facades.

You can register to either attend the live webinar on 7th May, or to receive a recording of this free webinar here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8896393095013798413?source=Bldg-Sim1
