Brock Year One: Candid Lessons from Operating at Net-Positive Energy and Net-Zero Water
Track: Case Studies

On April 1, 2015, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation turned off the municipal water and began operating the Brock Environmental Center using only collected rainwater. Concurrently, the team began monitoring daily energy consumption and production comparing actual data to modeled predictions. What could go wrong? You name it, but the team understood that you learn as much from problems as you do from success. The architect and the building operator will share these lessons learned, while engaging with the audience using interactive examples to understand how metered data provides clues to detect problems before they derail net-positive goals.
