Date: Thursday, August 20, 2020 | Time: 3-4 p.m. EST

Schools are leading the race to zero energy construction with over 200 verified and emerging educational projects across the country aiming to consume only as much energy as they produce from renewable resources. Recent advancements in building codes and zero energy policies confirm that zero energy schools are here to stay.

During this one-hour webinar, presenters from New Buildings Institute and VMDO Architects will share national trends in the field and how zero energy schools are a critical component of moving the needle to a carbon free and healthy future. Presenters will also share case studies of different schools path to zero energy and LEED Zero certification, including VMDO’s Discovery Elementary School project. Join us for a look into the current landscape for zero energy buildings, why your project should consider zero energy and resilience as the new normal, and best practices for getting there.
