Net Zero Energy Buildings have reached a tipping point. The economic limitations that restricted their success in the past have changed drastically and the technologies needed to achieve Net Zero Energy are now readily available. This session will begin by taking a look at the Living Building Challenge, particularly the intricacies of the Energy Petal, to teach participants what is involved with achieving a Net Zero Energy project and what it means to become Net Positive.

The session will showcase the latest Net Positive Energy Building projects, uncover the strategies and technologies used and the policies and programs in place that are accelerating the uptake of Net Zero and Net Positive Energy Buildings and Communities. Finally, the session will look to the future and uncover the trends emerging in Net Zero Energy, including the push to Net Positive Energy, and discuss how each participant can take the lessons learned into their own practice.

This event is pre-approved for AIA, GBCI and LFA. You are eligible for a refund of this ticket less a $15 Service Fee, until all refunds close at 11:59pm on May 2, 2017.
