Integrating Renewable Energy
This presentation introduces technical opportunities, means, and methods for incorporating renewable energy (RE) technologies into building designs and operations.  The speaker will give an overview of RE resources and available technologies used successfully in the USA to offset building electrical and thermal energy loads.  Methods for applying these technologies in buildings and the role of building energy efficiency in successful RE projects will be addressed.  The speaker will discuss issues related to connecting RE systems to existing electrical grids and offer tips for implementing successful RE projects. Finally, the speaker will summarize ASHRAE activities related to and/or in support of RE applications in buildings.
