Clean Energy Homes: Key Systems and Energy Modeling

  • Friday, July 17, 2020
  • 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • WE&T Webinar


Title 24, Part 11

This four-hour course is designed for those interested in learning about the 2019 California Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen). Cities across California are required to enforce the 2016 California Green Building Code effective January 1, 2017. The course will review residential and non-residential standards and demonstrate how designers and developers are addressing the requirements. New or updated standards will be highlighted in order to contrast changes from the previous code cycle. Changes to CALGreen 2020 will also be discussed.

Learning Outcome:

  1. Key products and systems used in all-electric homes (heat pumps for space conditioning, heat pump water heaters, induction cooktops and electric clothes dryers)
  2. How to model all-electric systems for Title 24 compliance
  3. How the all-electric compliance pathway works in practice – prescriptive and performance modeling
  4. Cost-effectiveness of all-electric designs compared to traditional designs
  5. Single-family and multifamily examples plus remodels and ADUs
  6. Quality of life reasons to consider all-electric designs
  7. Advanced topics (supplemental heat strips in heat pumps, radiant heating, etc)

    Target Audience:

    • Architects
    • Energy consultants
    • Product manufacturers
    • Residential builders, general contractors and trade subcontractors
