Mission critical facilities require abundant power resources to stay viable 24/7 and avoid outages which impact the health and safety of the public, hurt industries financially, and put reputations at risk. Many industries are using a combination of both mechanical systems and passive design strategies, defined as a system or structure that directly uses natural energy such as sun, wind, temperature differences or gravity to lower fuel requirements, enhance efficiencies, and ensure resiliency and reliability. This two-hour webinar will describe passive design principles that ensure energy requirements are kept to a minimum and discusses both benefits and challenges to the approach. Case studies will also be used to bring to life examples of passive design approaches such orientation, ventilation, shading devices, thermal mass, insulation, daylighting and more.
