In Pursuit of Zero Net Energy

Monday, September 11
1:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Location: Installer Training: Booth 4387

Codes development and policy creation are symbiotic in their ability to support and grow markets or to stifle their progression. New, innovative products carry the promise of continually improving the performance of buildings in their pursuit of the ultimate in energy efficiency, where energy consumed is completely supplied by energy generated. Balance in this equation, however, cannot be achieved without renewable generation. This session will discuss the considerations in this pursuit and how clear, consistently applied codes and standards can achieve Zero Net Energy.
