EPIC Symposium Discussion Zeroing in on Highly-Efficient Buildings



California has a goal to have all new residential construction be zero-net energy (ZNE) by 2020, new commercial construction to follow by 2030, and for the energy efficiency savings of existing facilities to double by 2030. What will it take to turn those goals into reality?

Find out when a panel of experts from the building industry and city government discuss their research and strategies for achieving highly-efficient buildings during the fourth Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Symposium on February 7 at the Sacramento Convention Center.

ZNE buildings are an important tool in the state’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Such buildings use innovative tools, strategies and technologies to minimize energy use and generate electricity.

Panelists include a city of San Diego planner who is using cutting-edge technology to retrofit existing libraries to ZNE; a developer who designs and operates highly-efficient, all-electric, low-income multifamily buildings; a researcher analyzing the benefits of all-electric versus mixed fuel housing, a building expert familiar with the challenges of marketing ZNE single family homes; and a tech industry CEO whose company has developed an innovative app that shows customers how to save energy in their homes.

The symposium is a forum for industry leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs and others to discuss clean energy research and to learn more about cutting-edge strategies helping to transform California’s electricity system.

The event is free and open to the public. To register, visit the EPIC Eventbee web page. To participate remotely, view the event notice.
