On behalf of the California Public Utilities Commission, NBI and partners hosted three statewide ZNE workshops this fall to support local governments and other stakeholders on zero net energy buildings. The events, which took place in Berkeley, San Jose and Santa Monica offered an opportunity for California’s early adopters to stimulate collaboration, highlight leading buildings and policies, and foster knowledge sharing in order to meet California ZNE 2020 and 2030 goals.
Presentations featured advanced ZNE building designers sharing details of local projects as well as policy case studies offered by governments representatives. Tours of the West Berkeley Library in Berkeley and Environmental Innovation Center in San Jose were included in the events.
Presentations of the workshops are now available at: www.newbuildings.org/municipal-workshops
