Presented by AIA East Bay's Committee on the Environment (COTE) and Young Architects Forum & Emerging Professionals (YAF&EP) -

Design strategies to save energy are encouraged to be applied in the early stage of design because construction costs become significantly expensive when the change is implemented later in the design process. This presentation discusses that a series of energy simulation needs to be studied in the early stage of design in order to achieve the optimal energy efficient performance. This presentation provides case-studies of energy analysis in the early stage of design. The energy analysis can be limited to only a handful of feasible options or it can include very detailed systematic parametric analysis. Such analysis includes shape, orientation, fenestration sizes, construction, insulation, lighting power density, equipment power density as well as HVAC systems. Such in-depth analysis has been expedited by today’s technology and can provide feedback to designers in less than a day. The presentation draws the conclusion that systematic parametric analysis is imperative in informing designers and that it should be carried out early in the design as a part of routine climate analysis.
