This one-hour presentation designed for architects, engineers, and planners looks at wind power basics and provides an overview of urban wind and vertical axis wind turbines, their benefits, components, and installation. At the end of the presentation you wil l be able to summarize the function of a wind turbine, describe the relationship between wind speed, capture area and power genera ted, describe the characteristics of urban wind systems, define the vertical axis wind turbine, and identify those characteristic s that make it ideal for urban applications, gather and analyze data necessary for VAWT selection, considering location and energy <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Energy use in Indian buildings is being driven by the growth in floor space and the increasing intensity of energy use as a result of higher service level requirements. ECO-III Project in close collaboration with BEE has been working to improve EE in commercial buildings by working on ECBC implementation, development of energy use benchmarks for commercial buildings, energy simulation capacity building, and by working with architectural institutes to develop capacity in offering building physics and energy simulation courses. ECO-III Project is widely viewed as one of the major activities in India focused on improving energy efficiency in the buildings sector through cutting-edge research, analysis, and public-domain publications.
Bison products include: deck supports (made in USA, 20% post-consumer recycled materials, gravity-based system); cubes (modular planters with recycled content, custom colors, finishes and sizes that integrate with Bison Decks); and wood tiles (commercial grade, Class A fire rated, FSC® certified [FSC -C013454] with custom sizes available). The unique single-panel design of CENTRIA's MetalWrap™ Series insulated composite back-up panel makes it the best choice to provide thermal and moisture protection for building exteriors with metal, brick or terra cotta by eliminating the need for traditional multi-component back-up systems. Active beams are one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling solutions available to schools, and work by harnessing the superior power of water to transport energy. A hybrid air-water solution, beams can reduce air duct sizes, thereby reducing the mechanical footprint of a building. Beams can also deliver draft-free comfort to classrooms and common areas.
