About the Getting to Zero National Forum

Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and New Buildings Institute (NBI) are once again joining forces to bring you the premier global event dedicated to defining the future of low energy and zero energy (ZE) buildings.

ZE has captured the imagination of building professionals and energy efficiency advocates as a path to transform the built environment. Nearly all those surveyed believe ZE will be mainstream by 2050. The Getting to Zero National Forum is a platform for changemakers working to realize that vision.

Forum attendees will share perspectives on the growth of ZE, discuss the policies driving new projects, engage in best practices for successful outcomes and collaborate on opportunities for ZE to become the standard for the built environment.  Read more
