Module 3 - Project Goals Targets & Strategies
  • Project Goals that will guide your design decision-making
    • Utilizes newest sustainable technologies
    • Community oriented
  • Measures that can be used to quantify the performance of your design relative to each goal
    • Net Site Energy
    • Net source Energy
    • Net energy emissions
    • Net Energy Cost
  • Target Values for each of the measures
    • As low as I can get them to be depending on the location and available resources. I want to try to reach a net energy emissions of 0
  • Strategies that you’d like to explore for achieving these targets
    • Take advantage of solar collection systems: heat sinks / solar panels
    • Site orientation to soak up the most sunlight energy during the summer months to sell back to the grid and reduce net energy cost during winter months.
    • Reduce boiler usage and chiller by utilizing waste air system
    • Locally sourced materials + recycled materials + material science
    • Not toxic paints
    • LED lighting + use of natural light
    • Collect rain water
    • Use of wind energy/wave energy if located close to shore?
