Net Zero Energy Webinar Series 2016

Monday, September 26, 2016 - 9:00am

Join us for the Net Positive Energy Buildings in the second installment of the Energy Petal Webinar Series!

In the first quarter of 2015, the United States installed 1,306 megawatts of solar photovoltaics to reach 21.3 gigawatts of total installed capacity, enough to power 4.3 million American homes. There are nearly 300 projects registered for the Living Building Challenge right now. And buildings like the Bullitt Center in Seattle, which achieved Full Living Building Certification in April, generated 60% more energy than it used in 2014. Californians are leading the way in renewable energy, in 2014 they installed more solar than the entire country did between 1970 to 2011.

Learn how to design and create Net Zero Energy Buildings in our new 5-part Energy Petal Webinar Series.
