About This Item


Full Description

This product is a PDF that contains links to files that consist of PowerPoint slides synchronized with the audio-recording of the speaker (recorded presentation), PDF files of the slides, and audio only (mp3) as noted.

The strategy is to reduce demand, maximize efficiency and harvest site energy. Orientation, facade properties, shading, inside design conditions and demand ventilation for outside air for meeting IAQ are the important areas on which this seminar focuses. Equipment selection with hybrid chillers, dual fluid precision units, chilled beams, variable-air volume units, variable-speed drives for AHUs and pumpsets, thermal storage, vapor absorption system and car park exhaust system can be optimized. A building automation system can be handy in reducing the energy costs and validates the design by providing quality inputs. Installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance lead further to saving of energy. One unit saved is two units produced. Energy saving is only a relative term and it is a continuous process with no limits. All energy-saving concepts are brought out with energy-saving figures.
