Full Description

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

Research has shown that tall buildings are large energy consumers, including both embodied energy and operational energy. Additionally, there are indications that Energy Use Intensity of tall buildings is generally greater than for shorter buildings. This seminar will present a variety of methodologies that can be used during design to optimize the energy consumption in tall buildings as the world is being urbanized and the number of tall buildings worldwide is only expected to increase.
