OCTOBER 9-11, 2019 | OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA
Getting to Zero Forum
SOLUTIONS FOCUSED. INSPIRED INNOVATION. COLLECTIVE IMPACT.
Join us at the premier global event dedicated to creating a zero energy, zero carbon future for the built environment.
The Getting to Zero Forum is a solutions-focused event dedicated to zero energy and zero carbon buildings. The 2019 Forum will bring together 550+ leading policymakers, design professionals, building owners, systems manufacturers, commercial real estate representatives and others working to define a new energy future for the built environment. One year after the Global Climate Action Summit in California, the Forum has been named the official follow-up event for the building industry. Continuing the work of the Global Climate Action Summit, the Forum has a specific focus on scaling energy and zero carbon buildings by developing tangible pathways for building owners, cities, communities, and states to meet their energy and climate goals, boost economic growth, and achieve the goals set out in the Paris Agreement.

NEW BLOG: Getting to Zero with Human-Machine Collaboration
Michael Floyd, AEC Sustainability Strategy at Autodesk, explains how generative design is helping architects take maximum advantage of passive energy efficiency measures during early conceptual design. When these passive opportunities—like optimizing building orientation, glazing ratio and natural ventilation—are not captured early on, they get too complicated and expensive to implement. Human-machine collaboration is empowering architects to easily manage complex tradeoffs so that every design begins on the best possible footing.
