Join us live online Thursday, December 16th at 9 AM PT - 10 AM MT - 11 AM CT - 12 Noon ET
To hear Peter Ewers, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Ewers Architecture

Commercial and residential buildings use almost 40% of the primary energy and 70% of the electricity in the US. Net Zero Energy buildings consume approximately 25% of the energy in a standard building. These building have reduced their loads by 75%, and then generate the rest of the energy using onsite renewable methods. Minimizing energy usage not only reduces carbon output, but also saves the building owner thousands of dollars each year in excess energy costs. This money saved can then be re-circulated back into the local economy. During this presentation, you will discover some of the latest cutting edge Net Zero designs and technologies as well as how to build a cost effective Net Zero Building.

Topics Covered include

  • Definition of a Net Zero Building
  • Cutting edge designs for Net Zero Buildings - case studies
  • Energy reduction design strategies that require no additional cost (and may even save on initial construction cost
  • The latest energy saving and energy producing technologies
  • Financing and ROI
  • What municipalities can do to encourage net zero buildings and how Net Zero Buildings benefit the municipality
