Strategic Planning for Community Net Zero Energy: From the local scale to Vermont’s statewide initiative

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the success of net zero energy (NZE) buildings, there is an opportunity to expand NZE to neighborhood, campus, watershed, city and state levels. This session will explore how non-profits, the business sector, citizens, institutional organizations and governments can successfully achieve NZE and be financially profitable. A methodology and process will be presented for successful implementation of NZE financial analysis, stakeholder engagement and funding source implications through donors, financial institutions or investors. In small breakout groups, participants will generate NZE strategic plans for their community projects using the process and methodology presented. Prerequisite: Interest in your community!
