The Latest Net Zero Energy Building Certified Projects: The Highs and the Lows

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

Our standing session on the latest NZE certified projects is always packed to the gills, a bit raucous, and tons o' fun.  We will do a deep dive on the Sacred Heart Schools Stevens Library, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, as well as Matt Grocoff's Mission Zero House, the retrofit of a 1901 farmhouse in wintry Ann Arbor, Michigan.  We will also hear from additional NZE certified projects announced at the Big Bang Dinner the night before.  Brad Liljequist will ask edgy and thought provoking questions about this new crop - their hopes, glories, trials and tribulations, in depth technical details, and how they achieved the Net Zero Energy.
