Zero Net Energy Buildings

Thursday, Jun 4, 2009

Date: June 4, 2009 from 6–8PM
Location: New York Academy of Sciences

This meeting is the final discussion in a 4-part series focused on achieving zero net energy in buildings. Renewable energy technologies, global best practices, and how to retrofit existing buildings are just a few of the topics covered this year.

Adopting new design practices and incorporating new technologies required to construct a zero net energy building may add substantially to initial costs. However, the investment in technologies to achieve net-zero energy usage is recouped over the life-time of the building. In order for developers to make this investment, sufficient financial incentive needs to be provided. This panel will address the valuation of the energy-generating and efficiency features of zero net energy buildings.

Exercising its unique position as a neutral third party, the Academy formed a collective including architects, engineers, scientists, policy makers from city and state, foundation and non-profit leaders representing the key players in New York in the area of green buildings and sustainable design. This newly formed group addresses a unique niche for which the Academy can leverage its scientific strength to deliver significant value to the green buildings discourse.
