Net Zero Buildings/Green Building Design, An Integrated Design Approach
Please join us as we welcome ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer David Underwood. David is an ASHRAE Fellow and the founder of Isotherm Engineering Inc. and Evaporative Tower Services in Ontario. Currently David serves on the Model National Building Code Committee and is very active in ASHRAE Society.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is an efficient, clean and reliable approach to generating power and energy from a single fuel source. CHP is one of the most efficient ways to burn fuel because little energy is lost as waste heat.
This course focuses on the fuel savings, emissions reduction, and decentralization of energy and power supply. The basic CHP terms and definitions, rating parameters, and energy conversion systems are discussed. The focus of this course is to understand thermal design for CHP systems and the types of technology that exists.
