6 US Total Energy Consumption by Source Zero Net means turning the coal, gas, and crude oil trends downward
7 US Sources of Electric Energy 2007 Source: US Energy Information Administration 2007 data
8 Present DayCoal is used to produce about 50% of the electricity in the US and 83% in China. Its use is growing in both countries.Increase in Chinese power demand adds (2) coal fired power plants per month to the grid.
9 Present DayGlobal climate change is accelerating as greenhouse gas concentration rises faster than expected. CO2 concentration will soon damage ecosystems is an international movement to reduce greenhouse gases to 350 ppm .
16 The Opportunity in Modern Lighting Lighting is a prime opportunity to mitigate energy use and greenhouse gas production 70% of lighting energy use is by day 50% of lighting energy use is by older, inefficient technologies Lighting is about 10% of the problem but it can be 20% of the solution!!!!
17 Designing Zero Net Buildings Reduce total lighting energy useFree up capacity for other usesReduce on-peak lighting energy useImprove the human environmentBetter healthMore productivityImprove the built environmentCapital improvements without capital investmentReduce human impact and carbon footprintLess energy useDark skies at night
18 What is “Zero Net”?Buildings that give and take energy from the grid, but in the end, have no “net” use.Required in California by law for all new residences by 2020 and for all new buildings by 2030.

24 Zero Net EnergyTotal non-renewable and off-site renewable sources are considered “Debits”Total on-site renewable sources are considered “Credits”End of year: a building is “zero net” if there are more Credits than Debits
25 Zero Net Electric Time of Use (TOU) Building energy demand profile does not match non-depletable source profileExcess thermal energy can be stored but excess electric energy is better off returned to the grid as a “bank”Bank “account” is depleted periodicallyPeak users pay a premiumPeak generators are rewarded
26 Guiding Principles of Zero Net Negawatts cost less than megawatts. Conservation first!Use passive measures as much as possible. Avoid complex systems except as a last choice.Start with the simple, low cost high payback measures

28 The Next Great Frontier of Design DaylightingThe Next Great Frontier of DesignIt is the Key to Zero Net
29 Daylighting’s Challenges Four generations of architects and engineers lost to cheap energyLimited number of qualified architects, consultants and educatorsNo established methodology or dominant theoryEighty years of bad habitsLighting designers must learn to design daylighting
30 Architecture’s Challenge: Architectural Fashion conflicts with Building Science Glass too transmittive – workers moved 10’ back from windowsRelies too much on low-e for solar gain controlPassive shading only works on one of four facadesCurtain wall poorly insulated
31 Architecture’s Challenge: 70 years of air conditioning have taught us a lot of bad habits This photo faces north!20-30X too much daylightPoor insulationToo much glare on sunny daysElectric lights all onGlare control material installed by building occupants also to help control heat gainOrientation
32 Engineer’s Challenge: Lighting controls are “too expensive” and lights are left on by day. “Value” engineering:Spend $2Million in energy to save $1Million in control system costsLighting Controls
33 Lighting Designer’s Challenge: controlling ourselves from inefficient designs WasteMore than ½ of the electric light energy goes straight up into the sky
34 Daylighting’s Principal Goal – Achieving Energy Balance UnderglazedGood DesignOverglazedSAVINGCOSTING
35 Daylighting’s Benefits Daylighting can save:Up to 100% of lighting demandThe cooling associated with lighting demandExcessive cooling due to sub-optimal daylightingCooling energy coincident with other peaksDaylighting ProvidesHealthier interior environmentsHigher productivityBetter interior spaces
36 Steps to Better Daylighting Use passive measures firstClimate tuned orientation and shadingCooling season solar gain controlPassive exterior components (natural and man made)High performance glazingAs much insulation as possibleSkylightsCurtain wallsMultiple roofs and skins for problem orientationsSimple skylights
