The New Net Zero
Leading-Edge Design and Construction of Homes and Buildings for a Renewable Energy Future
Approaching Net-Zero: Architects, Engineers & Researchers Propel Net-Zero Energy Buildings Toward the Mainstream
2 ¬Ė 3pm ET
The concept of net-zero buildings has set off a spark of interest in the green building sector. Policies such as California¬ís mandate that all new residential construction be net-zero by 2020, with commercial construction following suit by 2030, are helping push the notion into the mainstream. Now that the development of net-zero buildings is jumping from infancy to adolescence, several important questions arise: What¬ís the best path for achieving net-zero? Does it make sense for all buildings? And, what are the costs?
The webinar will discuss basic characteristics and benefits of net-zero energy buildings; outline the various ways of defining them; explain why certain types are better suited to certain places; and dispel some of the misconceptions associated with them. The entire project team, including designers, owners, developers, and clients would benefit from this material.
- Discuss various definitions of net-zero energy.
- Understand the basic steps for achieving net-zero.
- Explain the impact of climate and building type on net-zero buildings.
- Discuss basic strategies for making net-zero buildings affordable.
