Approaching Net Zero Energy at the Lowest Possible Cost: A Step-by-Step Path

Apr 15 2010 - 1:00am

Peter Amerongen, Habitat Studio and Workshop Ltd.

Free presentation and discussion. Free refreshments at 6:30 pm

Getting as close as possible to Net Zero Energy here on the northern prairies can be a daunting and expensive challenge. With our cold weather and long winter nights it requires a careful blend of conservation in all its forms, passive and active solar collection, as well as solar electricity.

Having worked through the obstacles to net zero energy for three successful projects to date Peter Amerongen, of Habitat Studio and Workshop Ltd, has begun to identify a logical series of steps for designing for maximum net energy reduction at the lowest incremental cost. The sequence that he will present will apply as well to net zero ready and near zero projects. Read more about Approaching Net Zero Energy at the Lowest Possible Cost: A Step-by-Step Path

The world of solar energy is changing fast. The price of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy continues its march downwards along with staggering world-wide growth. Huge new silicon foundries and PV module factories will be reducing PV module costs significantly. At the same time the price of electricity in Alberta is poised to soar due to the costs of transmission lines, carbon capture and greenhouse gas emission fees. The solar tipping point is within sight. Read more about Solar Electricity — from Dreamer's Paradise to Everyday Use
