Buildings contribute nearly 40% of annual global CO2 emissions currently and about two-thirds of the global building stock will still exist in 2040. If not retrofitted, the existing buildings will continue to generate unsustainable levels of GHG emissions. Thus, this session will showcase how each one of these projects can be an ideal opportunity to incorporate enhanced energy performance strategies, while also addressing the time and cost of adopting sustainable practices. This session will walk you through the workflow for setting up a renovation project (Interior only and Interior + Exterior) for performance modeling inside the webapp cove.tool. It will also touch on taking advantage of other analysis types such as Daylight, Carbon, Cost and Water Use. Finally, we will look at a variety of renovation case studies emphasizing the same.
