Radiant cooling and heating systems provide an opportunity to achieve significant energy and peak demand savings. However, as the use of these systems grows, particularly in zero-net-energy (ZNE) and other low-energy buildings, informed design and operation becomes a critical aspect of meeting expected performance. This full-day symposium will feature building practitioners and researchers who will present successful case studies, design practices, and the results of a multi-year research effort that created new insights and design tools.
