Pushing the Limits: What Does it take to Achieve Net-Zero Low-Carbon Building Energy Solutions Seminar?. Broad range of issues must be considered to create optimal Net-Zero Low-Carbon building energy solutions. This presentation outlines a systematic and holistic approach to identifying the best solution for each project with optimal match between different energy sources, technologies and building systems. This approach will be illustrated on a number of recent project examples involving innovative campus and district energy systems utilizing a mix of on-site renewable and low-carbon energy sources with energy recovered from a variety of waste streams.

This presentation outlines a systematic and holistic approach to identifying the best Energy solution for any project from stand-alone buildings to large scale neighborhoods and district scale developments with optimal match between different energy sources, technologies and building systems. 

It will address the various drivers, objectives and constraints affecting the choice of optimal energy solution including technical, financial and social/political, and it will illustrate application of this holistic approach on a number of real project examples.

The presentation will be concluded with a summary of a clear set of recommendations to be followed in order to achieve the optimal energy solution for each application 
 
Learning Objectives:
 
1.Present a holistic perspective on energy systems design
2. Bring clarity to a complex and often confusing subject of energy and GHG use reduction in the context of expanding society and economy 
3. Present real life examples of innovative energy solutions
