Giancarlo Tosi speaks about a revolutionary technology that is changing the way we cool our buildings.

Giancarlo Tosi the Regional Manager of DADANCO offers a presentation on the use of radiant heating and cooling with active chilled beams. Over the past 150, periodically, we have experienced significant mechanical system changes and introductions into our buildings. These systems delivered, what has become our rigorous expectation, for both occupant comfort and convenience. Central Heating, Indoor Plumbing, Electric Light, Ventilation, and of course Space Cooling. All have enormously improved our indoor experiences, the place where we spend 90% of our time. It has, of course, come at a cost. An acceptable financial one, but also one that was first not understood, but now of course is ---the negative impact on our climate. Mr. Tosi’s presentation is about a revolutionary technology that is changing the way in which we cool our buildings while at the same time spectacularly reducing the energy usage of what is one of our principle building loads ---Space Cooling.

Peter Levy speaks about the role of energy modeling in building design and construction

Peter Levy (MS, BEMP, LEED AP, CPHC), who is now co-owner of The Green Engineer Inc., a building energy consulting firm, is an alumnus of BCT's undergrad major as well as our Master's program. He spoke in his presentation about the value of building energy and daylight modeling and highlighted where those fit best into the building planning process. Interested in this topic? Peter will be teaching "Introduction to Building Energy Modeling" as a continuing education course at UMass Amherst's Mount Ida campus starting Fall 2019. More information... Synopsis An overview of the role that energy modeling plays in the design of buildings; including discussions about how energy models are used to inform design, pursue LEED (and other) certifications, procure utility incentives, and demonstrate code compliance. Additionally, how daylight modeling is used to optimize daylight opportunities, mitigate glare problems, and pursue LEED certification. https://youtu.be/54E_30owU1M Links Presentation Slides The Green Engineer ...
