This product is a zip file that contains files that consist of PowerPoint slides synchronized with the audio-recording of the speaker, PDF files of the slides, and audio only (mp3 format) as noted.

This seminar aim to assess the potential effects of climate change on the energy and hygrothermal performance and durability of buildings. This seminar will show through the three presentations: The improvement of passive building performance through the time-based thermal resilience metrics; the Net Zero building-grid integration issues and solutions, and discussion on how passive building techniques can handle some of these issues; and the resilience of Canadian homes and small buildings to the effects of climate change.

  • 1. Improvement of Passive Building Performance through the Time-Based Thermal Resilience Metrics
