Modern Heating Options for Commercial/Institutional Buildings

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
February 23, 2009 - 12:00pm
Location: 
90-3122
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

This seminar presentation will be video-conferenced from our Washington, DC Projects office.) According to USGBC, LBNL, and CBECS data, commercial/institutional buildings use one quarter of all the energy consumed in the US.  Depending on the geographic area of the country, heating can be as little as 30% (Houston), or as much as 68% (Minneapolis) of the building total.  Mr. Durkin will share his experience in dramatically reducing the heating energy in buildings using a combination of low temperature boilers, heat recovery strategies and a new approach to geo-thermal systems.  His data from completed projects shows 50 to 60% decrease in heating energy.  He will explain common misconceptions about conventional boiler ratings and make a compelling case for rethinking how commercial/institutional buildings are heated.
