June 2, 2016 at 8:01 am

Are you are interested in the key impacts of green roofs and walls—what they are, how impacts can be predicted, what factors affect performance, and how performance compares to predictions? Then you cannot miss the “From Passive House to the Cold North—How Vegetative Envelope Components Impact Buildings” Panel Session with Dr. Bob Cameron, Dr. Allen Lee, Dr. Karen Liu, and Chris Wark video from our Greenroofs & Walls of the World Virtual Summit 2015 ~ Connecting the Planet with Living Architecture: People, Projects & Design above or on our VS2015 Virtual Summit 2015 playlist on our GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube.

It’s been almost a year since we concluded our third Greenroofs & Walls of the World Virtual Summit, and as promised, we are now releasing the 23 videos from our 30+ international speakers to the general public.

Virtual Summit 2015 Video From Passive House to Cold North

VS2015-Karen-EastviewRandD2

The panel discussion will lead to some conclusions about how vegetative envelope components could influence the wider development of residential and commercial buildings based on the Passive House and Zero Net Energy concepts.  Four experts will share their knowledge of these topics through brief presentations followed by a lively discussion.

Moderator Allen Lee leads a wide range of studies related to energy efficiency and technologies.  Bob Cameron brings to the panel information from a study comparing replicate buildings that allowed measurement of the effects of different green building components on energy use, comfort, wastewater treatment, and food growing.  Karen Liu shares her extensive knowledge of the impacts of green roofs and how they depend on climate differences, seasonal variations, and other factors.  Chris Wark draws upon his broad experience in the analysis of green roofs, development of green roof systems, and systems thinking related to Passive House design.

Robert “Bob” D. Cameron, PhD

Virtual Summit 2015 Video From Passive House to Cold North

University Park, PA, USA. Bob spent more than two decades directing the global environmental programs of a Fortune 30 multi-national conglomerate. In the late ‘70s in collaboration with NASA, he designed, permitted, and constructed the first constructed wetlands to treat wastewater from the natural gas industry. Working on every continent except Antarctica, Bob designed award winning environmental programs based on sustainability concepts. Later as President of his own corporation, he de-engineered historic buildings destined for the wrecking ball, which he then relocated and reconstructed with green architectural features.

Pursuing a life-long goal, he recently earned his doctorate from Penn State University at the Center for Green Roof Research. His thesis entailed the invention and construction of a functional architectural system to attenuate wastewater pollutants while reducing a building’s energy use and providing a platform for urban agriculture. Currently, Bob has an appointment with the Department of Landscape Architecture at Penn State University and teaches collegiate courses and conducts research on greenroofs, livings walls, constructed wetlands, aquaponics, and artificial islands while also managing Eco Applied Technologies, a consulting firm for commercial, residential, and industrial applications. He has lectured on sustainable technologies around the world and in 2013 he literally circumnavigated the globe while working on environmental issues in numerous countries, including teaching environmental engineering for several months at a Chinese university which culminated in the design and construction of a living wall with the students. See the 2:45 video of his early work at Penn State “Robert Cameron investigates biofilters to clean dirty water.”

Publisher’s Note:  Read his March 2015 Guest Feature “An Integrated Biofilter System to Contribute to Net Zero Architecture While Providing Decentralized Wastewater Treatment” here on Greenroofs.com.

Amy Chomowicz (Organizer)

Portland, OR, USA. Amy Chomowicz is the Program Administrator for the Sustainable Stormwater Management Division and the Ecoroof Program, City of Portland Environmental Services. Amy has worked in the water quality and watershed restoration fields for 23 years and worked on her first ecoroof project in 1997.

You will benefit from these 5 Key Learning Objectives as Dr. Bob Cameron, Dr. Allen Lee, Dr. Karen Liu, and Chris Wark share on the subject:

1) Focus on key impacts and economics of greenroof and greenwall vegetative envelope components including energy and stormwater.  Identify what they are, how you can predict outcomes, what prediction tools are out there; a look at using greenroof and greenwall crops with biofilters in PA, others greenroof gardens in NYC, Portland, and China where rooftop farming is becoming very popular;

2) How does nature work, from an energy standpoint, using biology in regards to greenroofs and walls?  Integrating green building components relative to factors of energy – what kind of media, locations, building geometry, orientation, should people be looking at, i.e. optimizing greenroof to greenwall ratio. What ideas does everyone have for incorporating living green components into buildings?  The growth of pvs and greenroofs are discussed; 

3) Bob: His multi-year study at the PSU Green Roof Center concentrated on biowalls and greenroofs as a water resource and how these systems could be used to not only clean but also reduce the energy need and concurrently grow crops.  Get detailed results on how he achieved EPA’s cleanliness standards in less than 24 hours and at the same time reduced both the exterior and interior temperatures of the buildings; 

4) Karen: Started in 2000 with the National Resource Council in Ottawa performing multiple tests on various sites in Toronto and Vancouver, BC concentrating on temperature variances between winter and summer on greenroofs and growing media depth differences on water retention and energy savings;

5) Chris: Discussion on performance building concepts of the 90’s PassiveHaus movement originating in Dusseldorf, Germany and Net Zero Buildings, how to minimize the amount of energy generated within a small building through correct design and material components and evaluation of lifestyle issues and aesthetics.  Green building industry has grown so much in the last 20 years and PassivHaus has matured along the way – can we be doing more? Greenroofs are a promising part of it.
