Performance Engineering: Using Operations Data to Inform Design
Track: Energy + Power

Many buildings don’t perform as predicted; the solution is to bring performance realities back to design. This panel investigates design and performance of high-performance projects, considering how lessons learned in operations can be incorporated into the design process. We review predicted and actual metrics: water, energy, cost, and carbon. Panelists will include the lead engineer and the energy analyst for the first net-zero lab building, and an international designer with experience in performance tracking systems.
