Where: Northwest Natural Gas Building, Downtown Portland

Why: Please join us for a discussion on innovative building envelope technology as it applies to energy efficiency! We’ll take a look at this exceedingly complex building system that often overlooked and under optimized. So what’s new? How have the latest materials and systems affected life-cycle costs? How have new technologies influenced design? What are the roadblocks and limitations to super insulating all buildings moving forward? And what are the options for evaluating and improving performance of existing building envelopes? Finally, we’ll discuss utility programs available to incentivize high performance building envelope execution.
Join us as we learn about what defines a modern high performance envelope and what the future holds!
