This presentation explains data by storytelling, demonstrating case studies of high-performance buildings with stringent energy reduction goals, as well as pros and cons of building performance analysis tools. Case studies will cover early-stage design analysis, such as passive design strategies, façade optimization, and parametric analysis as well as detailed design energy analysis.

Ladan Ghobad, Ph.D, LEED AP BD+C
Ladan is a building scientist and energy analyst; her practice focuses on energy performance analysis in new construction and existing building renovations, daylighting analysis, and thermal comfort studies.
She is an expert in energy modeling and daylighting simulation using variety of software programs. She has built her expertise working in the professional field for eight years after she had graduated from NC State University with a Ph.D. degree in Sustainable Design. Ladan has worked on over 35 projects, including Zero Net Energy (ZNE) and LEED projects, Title T-24 compliance projects, and large-scale sustainable master-planning projects. In addition, she has published several papers about architectural design optimization, comparison of simulation software programs, daylighting simulation, and case studies of the actual projects that she had worked on.
