    CaliforniaGeo’s True Zero Net Energy (without fossil fuels) Seminar + Webinar is set for April 23rd at San Jose City College (SJCC). Save a spot on your calendar to learn how progress will be made toward an all-ZNE new residential building requirement for 2020, with another one for commercial buildings by 2030. If your business is not prepared for making new buildings carbon-free and ZNE in five short years— reserve your seat to learn how ZNE is happening in both the new and (retrofit) built environment. Plan on attending this technology and case study-rich session. The advanced building train is leaving the station. Be sure you’re on it!

    You’ve got two ways to participate. Attend in person at San Jose City College in San Jose, California or spare the air and attend via webinar from the comfort of your desk. Seating is limited for both, we suggest you reserve your seat today.

    GBCI and AIA CEUs will be available for both the Seminar (in-person) and the Webinar. CEU hours will be available soon. For updates follow us @CaliforniaGeo and watch #CarbonFreeZNE_SJCC
