This meeting is the first of 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 to be covered this year. This first meeting will take a critical look at the definitions of zero net energy buildings and the metrics used to evaluate them.

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.
