Positive Energy Buildings: The Least Cost Option (1.5 LU)
Join in a conversation with Bill Maclay, architect & author of “The New Net Zero” as he shares his experience creating carbon (and cash flow) positive projects.
Bill will share a financial methodology which demonstrates that positive energy buildings are typically the least cost option on a cash flow basis when compared to fossil fuel buildings. Commercial, institutional, and residential case studies will illustrate the detailed and interwoven financial/energy analysis process, metrics, and templates used to guide positive energy projects from initiation to completion These projects also accrue long term financial, ecological, social, and health benefits.
Participants will increase their ability to act as effective change agents at scale with larger impact. Explore how we, as designers and change agents, can contribute to the rapid evolution that is necessary to make projects inclusive, healthy, regenerative, positive energy, and carbon storing
