Getting to Zero:  Design and Operating Zero Net Energy Buildings 

Webinar Date:
      December 2, 2015 at 1:30-3:00 pm ET

Over the past decade, zero net energy (ZNE) buildings are moving from rare examples to a mainstream development approach. State and local policies and activities are helping drive the development of this ultra-efficient building method and drive rapid innovation in the building industry. New Buildings Institute (NBI) has been leading a national effort to support, track and improve the design and operation of ZNE buildings in the US. By maintaining a national registry and database, NBI has gathered useful data and insights on these buildings. Through our work supporting the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and California investor owned utilities (IOU), we have applied these lessons to develop workshops, project consulting and the only national Forum dedicated to getting ZNE buildings to scale in the US. This webinar session will share our insights and lessons learned from the early adopters of ZNE in the commercial building sector. Please join us for an engaging and informative session.
