Passive House and an All-Renewable Energy Seminar at SLAC

Thursday 29 June 2017, 12:00 Noon to 1:00 PM
2575 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025

For the Stanford community (faculty, staff, and students) at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and sponsored by Women's Interchange at SLAC (WIS).

This presentation will explain basic principles of Passive House design, and show how the Passive House Primary Energy Renewable (PER) design framework can support an all-renewable energy future. We'll hear about how our grid system is currently structured, and how this PER fits into an all-renewable grid. We'll look at how this can also apply in urban environments and on sites with less-than-optimum solar orientation. We'll review the potential new role this framework offers for utilities to regain their place in the energy eco-system as large-scale, long-term renewable energy storage providers and suppliers.

Led by Bronwyn Barry, a licensed architect based in San Francisco, who runs the design practice, PassiveHouseBB. PassiveHouseBB focuses exclusively on Passive House buildings.
