Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Design in Hotels Francisco Guerrero Neguillo, Reardon Smith Architects

In this lecture, energy efficiency and sustainable design in hotels will be discussed, focussing on two main areas: 1)     Mechanical Service Systems (Energy Efficiency Design in Hotels). Three different examples will be discussed: Air source Heat Pumps, Ground Source Heat Pumps, VRF Systems (Variable Refrigerant Flow). 2)     Construction Systems (Envelope Design). Two different examples will be explored: Thermally broken slabs, Unitised Panels. The aim of this lecture is to provide the designers with a good understanding of how the above mentioned systems function, and how they can better be integrated into their design.   Francisco Guerrero is an ARB accredited Architect and has a MSc in Energy Efficient and Sustainable Building from Oxford Brookes University. He works at Reardon Smith Architects, which is an award–winning global leader in hotel and resort design.

Tailoring building energy simulation to address economic barriers facing deep retrofits

Dr Adam Rysanek, University of Cambridge

Abstract TBD

Adam first joined the Energy Efficient Cities initiative in Fall 2009 as a PhD student. In 2013, after completing his PhD, Adam joined the EECi as a Research Associate. In this new role, he’s been developing the work package for the EECi City of Westminster project (to be rolled out in February 2014), and pursuing investigative research into integrated distributed energy cogeneration with electric vehicle charging. Adam has been the lead developer of the Distributed Energy Resource Modelling Suite (DERMOS). The DEmand LOad REconStructor (DELORES), an offshoot of DERMOS , was recently packaged and released as generalized software tool for the research and non-research community.

This talk is part of the Sustainability in the Built Environment (GreenBRIDGE) series.
