NZE at Cost Parity
While Zero Energy buildings are becoming more common, they are not being adopted at the scale we need to meet the challenges we face. The reasons architects and engineers cite for not doing zero energy are plentiful: it takes too much time, or it costs too much, or the owner isn’t on board, or the team doesn’t know how to deliver. This session will upend these excuses and show how zero energy is possible today, within conventional budgets and using off-the-shelf technologies, using real buildings as case studies.
