Zero Net Energy School Retrofit Workshop
Innovative energy solutions like zero net energy (ZNE) buildings are a way to save energy and put money back into classrooms. Attend the ZNE Schools Retrofit Workshop to learn how California's K-12 schools and community colleges can achieve ZNE through whole-building retrofits.To support local schools, the state's investor-owned utilities (IOUs) are funding pilot projects and training workshops across California through a Prop 39 Zero Net Energy Schools Pilot Program. This full-day technical sessions will offer real-world examples of technology applications and design practices that have resulted in superior energy use through whole-building retrofits in schools. Attendees will also learn about the operational practices necessary to retain low-energy benefits including substantial savings on monthly energy expenses. The interactive program will share details on the potential for Prop 39 funds to help finance ZNE retrofits and build knowledge on the strategies for communication, planning, design and financing projects.
Who should attend: Architects, engineers, operations managers, business officers, constructions managers and others interested in ZNE.
Open to all Summit registrants at no cost.
|This session offers five AIA CEUs and .5 ICC CEUs|

How to Make Your Campus Water Independent
Water quality, water reliability, and water resiliency are major questions facing small and large campuses. Learn how to produce high quality filtered water from the air with an Atmospheric Water Generator, and how to process your waste water to be used for non-potable uses. These technologies combined with other standard water saving technologies, like storm water management, low flow fixtures, and drought tolerant landscape, can achieve significant water savings, if not water independence.
Every campus is unique, so we will identify how to make a plan towards achieving significant water reduction.
