In this session, the presenter will update the audience on the current energy situation and directions for achieving greater levels of sustainability. He then focuses on renewable energy resources and technologies, and shows completed projects to demonstrate what works in different settings All-electric net zero and near zero energy projects with solar power and geothermal HVAC are presented in illustrative case studies with real-world results. Architects and other design professionals are encouraged to attend. The intent is to answer any and all questions the audience may pose to make their projects as sustainable and inexpensive to operate as possible using the technologies and concepts presented in the program.

1. Appreciate the need for immediate action by building design professionals to embrace renewable energy and energy efficiency with a goal of net zero and net zero with their projects, in order to slow climate change.
2. Learn how solar electricity is (currently) the most viable technology to reduce carbon footprint and operating costs of utilities and buildings. Understand associated best practices, applications and technology options for rooftop systems.
3. Accrete prerequisites and best practices for Geothermal HVAC and appreciate their ability to produce comfortable, healthy, and environmentally friendly buildings.
4. Design integrated buildings that incorporate an environmentally-friendly renewable energy and efficiency program, satisfying owner’s needs while saving money (demonstrated in the included case studies)
