Net Positive Symposium: Thermal Bridges in Passive House Design
October 31, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0
Christian Cianfrone, Building Energy Specialist, will present Thermal Bridges in Passive House Design on day 2 of the symposium, October 31 at 1 p.m.
As Passive House becomes increasingly popular in commercial, institutional, and high rise multi-unit residential construction, our understanding of thermal bridging needs to consider an expanding range of materials, assemblies and construction methods. Luckily, quantifying the impact of and mitigating thermal bridges has been the subject of research for the last several years, yielding a large amount of data that industry can benefit from. This presentation will introduce participants to an exciting project that is currently in development – an online Thermal Bridging Performance Database. Participants will get a sneak peek into the resource, including how the data can be leveraged to make better decisions on projects and ultimately reduce energy use on buildings.
