The need to achieve sustainable buildings in hot and humid climates calls for an understanding of the local climate, and integrating appropriate building technologies into the architectural and urban design. A new and anticipated track at this year’s conference, Residential – Modern Building in Hot and Humid Climates, will discuss how modern residential design and building practices can be integrated into hot and/or humid climates with specific challenges ranging from indoor comfort to ventilation and mold.
Another popular design track, District Energy and Cogeneration Plants, will address how the carbon footprint is being minimized by combining resources. This track takes a look at the advantages and limitations, do’s and don’ts and best practices of utilizing this type of shared system.
