Southern California Gas Company with support from AIA Pasadena & Foothill is providing a training seminar on Zero Net Energy (ZNE) and thermal comfort. This course is intended for a technical audience of commercial building design professionals including architects, engineers, contractors, energy efficiency specialists, and energy modelers.

Join our team for a training dedicated to the exchange of technical knowledge, new strategies and case studies to address the unique design and engineering challenges that ZNE presents and how they can be overcome. A key focus will be on discussing ‘how’ thermal comfort is maintained while working towards zero net energy and natural gas savings.


At the end of this session, attendees will be able to answer the following questions:

1. What is thermal comfort?

2. Why do we need to know about thermal comfort?

3. How do our designs create thermal comfort?

4. How can we design buildings towards zero net energy buildings while achieving thermal comfort?
