January Membership Lunch Program
Incorporating photovoltaics into your next building can present great opportunities for energy savings without detracting from architectural design solutions or a building's appearance. But how you start the BIPV design process, determine what building products should be considered, sizing up systems, obtaining green building credits, and securing financial opportunities for your client are but just a few of the challenges architects will face in navigating the integrated photovoltaic design process.
Presenters Steve Sheldon and Chris Phipps shall provide participants an introduction to building integrated photovoltaics for both residential and non-residential projects. Participants shall gain practical insight and understanding of the BIPV design process, and have an opportunity to ask questions pertaining to designing and specifying products within this rapidly expanding marketplace.
Steve Sheldon is a founding partner and architect at IBIS Builds, a company that specializes in green development. Recent completed projects include the Florence Lofts, a LEED Gold Certified mixed-use development in Sebastopol, California, and Lyding Commons, a live/work community.
Chris Phipps is the Vice President of Marketing for DC Power Systems headquartered in Sonoma Mountain Village. DC Power Systems is a national full-service wholesale distributor of renewable energy products including building integrated photovoltaics.
