Creating Zero Net Energy Buildings @ SJCC

April 23, 2015

$25.00 – $150.00

Learn more about the concept at Creating Zero Net Energy Buildings with Off-the-Shelf Technologies, a simultaneous seminar + webinar from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 23 at San Jose City College’s Technology Center, 600 South Bascom Avenue, in San Jose, CA. The event is a co-production of CaliforniaGeo and the Division of Business and Workforce Development at San Jose City College, with Education Partner sponsorship by the Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO).

How can we achieve a carbonless economy by 2050 at less cost for our energy than we spend today? The seminar will tackle this question and a full agenda of related topics as experts explore what a carbonless, electric-based economy will look like, powered by wind, water, and solar renewable energy sources. Today’s high efficiency envelopes, ventilation, and lighting systems, coupled with geothermal heat pumps’ access to the subsurface thermal resource will lead the way.

A professional slate of speakers will provide an in-depth view of how residential, commercial and institutional buildings can meet both near-and long-term Zero Net Energy (ZNE) goals. Case studies of various types of buildings will demonstrate how ZNE efficiency goals can be achieved with existing technologies that are seldom used in concert with one another in the same design.

Who should attend?  Everyone who cares about our future energy needs and the policies and technologies we can use today to reach our goals should consider attending this important event.  Architects, engineers, builders, contractors (HVAC, mechanical, solar), school administrators and facilities staff, policy makers, and representatives of government agencies will benefit from the experience.

AIA and GBCI CEUs are available due to the generosity of CaliforniaGeo’s Education Partner-Sponsor Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO).

Seminar cost.  Variable ($25 – $150), depending on seminar vs webinar attendance and Continuing Education Units options. Lunch is included for in-person attendees.
