The future of buildings is coming. What part will you play?

Zero energy is an ultra-efficiency building performance goal that owners can define, design teams can reach for and occupants desire.

The 2015 Getting to Zero National Forum, held Feb. 1-3 in Washington, D.C., gathered North America’s leading policymakers, designers, building owners, commercial real estate professionals and others to share perspectives on the growth of zero energy buildings, learn about best practices for successful projects and collaborate on opportunities for zero energy to transform the built environment. Zero energy buildings are high efficiency structures that consume only as much energy as can be produced onsite with renewable resources.

Speakers and dGTZ_EventSummaryButtonelegates brought the critical perspectives and inquiry necessary to advance understanding and spur action. These change-makers, who represent diverse audiences from energy and building industries, shared knowledge, set priorities and inspired one another to lead in redefining the future of the built environment.
