Join us in creating a new future for Energy Use. The California Energy Commission has given us in California an outstanding opportunity to determine how the future unfolds. The CEC recommends, in its Integrated Energy Policy Report, that in 2020 all new residential buildings be required to meet zero-net-energy performance standards, and in 2030, all new buildings are required to meet the Zero Net Energy standard. This means that all new buildings, averaged over a year, take no more energy from the power grid that they put back on the power grid from on-site power sources, presently anticipated as solar and wind. The key to achieving these recommendations is to build highly energy efficient buildings. Imagine how it will impact the United States and the world when California, the 8th largest economy in the world, achieves these performance standards! The Zero Net Energy Working Group is organizing a Zero Net Energy Conference to give California building professionals the information they need to take advantage of this opportunity. Prior to the conference, we are organizing a series of Roundtables; to build momentum for the Conference.and educate California builders and architects on critical Zero Net Energy topics, You do not have to be a building professional to make history.
