Integrating Renewable Energy into Building Systems

This presentation introduces technical opportunities, means, and methods for incorporating renewable energy (RE) technologies into building designs and operations. The speaker will give an overview of RE resources and available technologies used successfully in the USA to offset building electrical and thermal energy loads. Methods for applying these technologies in buildings and the role of building energy efficiency in successful RE projects will be addressed. The speaker will discuss issues related to connecting RE systems to existing electrical grids and offer tips for implementing successful RE projects. Finally, the speaker will summarize ASHRAE activities related to and/or in support of RE applications in buildings.

Destinguished Lecturer

Sheila Hayter, PE, FASHRAE, LEED AP

Laboratory Program Manager

Federal Energy Management Program

National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Sheila is with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado where she is the Laboratory Program Manager for the DOE’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP).  In this role, she leads NREL’s portfolio of activities focused on helping U.S. federal agencies identify, implement, and evaluate opportunities related to energy/water resilience and security, facility and fleet optimization, and energy and project procurement.  

Since joining NREL in 1992, Sheila’s roles have included line management, partnership development, project management, and research.  Prior to assuming the FEMP LPM role, she was a line manager within the Integrated Application Center (IAC) leading a team of technical and policy experts who support international, federal, state, and local entities on energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) topics with the goal of making significant reductions in non-renewable energy consumption though optimized use of EE strategies and RE technologies. During this time, Sheila also led IAC’s partnership development activities and managed work addressing technical challenges to identifying, evaluating, and implementing clean energy solutions. 

In addition to her NREL work, Sheila served as the 2018-2019 ASHRAE President and has held many other ASHRAE leadership roles throughout her career.  She was awarded the ASHRAE Distinguished Service Award, ASHRAE Exceptional Service Award, and an ASHRAE Technology Award, and she received the ASHRAE Fellow distinction. Sheila is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado.
