Leading experts host electric building webinar

Latest in #GrowYourKnowledge series looks at challenges of electrification

The CIBSE #GrowYourKnowledge webinar series continues in 2023, with an event on the All-Electric Building on 15 March.

The webinar is based on a session held at Build2Perform Live, and looks at the challenges of electrification, including grid capacity, design strategies, and accommodating electric vehicle charging (Part S).

The panel considers approaches to electrification, including strategies for existing building stock. To illustrate these challenges, and potential solutions, they present a recent case study of Convent Way, a new all-electric residential development in Hounslow (see ‘Current challenge’, CIBSE Journal, January 2023).

The webinar is chaired by Katie ClemenceJackson, sustainability associate at QODA, and the speakers are: Chris Twinn, principal at Twinn Sustainability Innovation; Tony Day, energy research consultant; and Henry Metcalfe, senior electrical engineer at QODA Consulting.

Previous webinars include: Dynamic thermal modelling of basic blinds, TM69; Urban albedo: developing a canyon albedo calculator (R106); Commissioning Code M: Commissioning management launch; Heat pump installations for large non-domestic buildings; and What does net zero mean? CIBSE-LETI FAQs.

All are available to watch on demand.
