Grid-interactive efficient building (GEB) strategies: Tools, resources and expertise for every member of your project team

Join us for a Building Energy Simulation Forum (BESF) on March 20 to learn about the benefits of grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs). We’ll cover tools that are available for your project team and practical solutions to implement grid resiliency principles into your design.

Alexi Miller from New Buildings Institute (NBI) will share how commercial professionals can use newly available resources to demonstrate more meaningful project-level GEB metrics to developers and decisionmakers. Learn about design guides, calculation tools and recommendations for grid-interactive strategies for your building, and how these methods have been translated into real-world case examples.

In this webinar training you will learn about:

  • Systems and technologies essential to incorporate GEB into your design
  • How energy efficiency and demand response flexibility strategies can serve as the foundation for a new era of GEBs
  • The interplay between grid resiliency and building resiliency, and how you can plan for both within your building design
  • How to identify and communicate various GEB-related value streams for different members of your project team, from direct cost savings to greenhouse gas emissions reductions

Don’t miss this chance to hear about the latest GEB tools available to Oregon’s designers, and how your building can benefit from these principles.
