Zero Net Energy—From Building Scale to Campus Scale | Planning Webinar 9/30

Zero Net Energy—From Building Scale to Campus Scale | Planning Webinar 9/30 | Agriculture and Environment | Scoop.it

Interest in zero net energy (ZNE) grows rapidly, but implementation is lagging. This webinar will look at the decision-making factors institutions consider when building a ZNE facility. Is the trend line bending towards greater ambition, or are institutions staying on the sidelines as costs come down, technologies improve, and the daring few pave the way, offering valuable lessons learned? Corporate and institutional representatives will also examine lessons from from Washington University in St. Louis, Cornell University, and Case Western Reserve University. They will offer first-hand experience on specific ZNE installations, both at the small and large scale, and will look ahead to predict what's next. This program will include frequent audience polling and opportunities for questions.
