The Art and Science of Building Performance
Description of Program:
In this program, Kevin Gilleran draws on his 22+ years in the field of building energy performance to present best practices in energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy strategies. He shows how to realize immediate financial savings and increased asset value in both new and existing buildings by means of a prioritized energy upgrade evaluation.
Kevin Gilleran is a principal of Santa Rosa-based Gilleran Energy Management. Gilleran Energy Management works with building owners, developers, design and construction team members to find ways to implement current and proven energy efficiency, conservation measures and renewable energy into new and existing buildings.
Kevin's extensive experience in both the commercial and residential realms includes: building energy modeling for passive or active solar applications, energy modeling for compliance with Title 24, ASHRAE 90.1, and other standards, design of commercial PV systems, site feasibility review, data logging and development of measurement protocols, fundamental commissioning (Cx) of building energy systems, LEED consulting and rating, Home Energy Rating Services (HERS) rating, and building performance testing.
Kevin is a Certified Energy Analyst (CEA), Certified Energy Manager (CEM), Certified Planchecker, HERS rater, LEED for Homes Representative and Rater, GreenPoint Rater (GPR), Qualified Commissioning Process Provider (QCxP), and LEED Accredited Professional.
1.At completion of this Program, participants will be able to expand a project focus to a "whole building" approach that addresses California's GHG-reduction goals through water usage, envelope (thermal mass, air sealing, insulation, glazing), lighting, mechanical systems, appliances, and other plug loads.
2.At completion of this Program, participants will be able to prioritize whole building upgrades (such as lighting upgrades, cool roofing, daylighting, glazing upgrades, exterior sun shading devices, high-efficiency equipment, etc.) using a logical and synergistic approach.
3.At completion of this Program, participants will be able to recommend to clients a range of current incentives, tax credits, and low-cost financial opportunities (such as PACE, SCEIP, SAFE-BIDCO, etc.) that can help pay for energy efficiency measures.
4.At completion of this Program, participants will be able to explain to building owners the ways in which energy efficiency upgrades "pencil out" through both ongoing savings in energy costs and increases in asset value.
