ASES Webinar: Passive Solar Design & Thermal Mass in an Off Grid Home
In an effort to move buildings towards zero energy and zero carbon we need to consider making buildings self-regulating through the design of the building envelope itself. A good passive solar building can maintain indoor comfort conditions with no need for electricity, fossil fuels or mechanical systems. This significantly reduces the carbon footprint of the building and improves its resiliency. Passive solar is a balance of solar gain through the windows, thermal mass and insulation. With a good understanding of the engineering principals and a careful selection of materials, passive solar can be designed into any building in any climate.

This webinar will be presented by John Spears:
