WEBINAR: Transforming How we Build: Zero Code for California
The ZERO Code is a model reach code for adoption by California cities and counties. It builds on the foundation set by the state’s building energy efficiency standards and requires that commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings either install or procure enough renewable energy to achieve zero energy and zero carbon emissions. Charles Eley, FAIA, PE will share how the ZERO Code for California has two major innovations: (1) recognition of various off-site renewable energy procurement methods such as SMUD’s Neighborhood SolarShares program and (2) a dynamic metric for evaluating building performance that encourages load shifting, storage, and grid harmonization.
SMUD + AIACV bring you this year-long series “Transforming How We Build”, dedicated to high performance, regenerative design. It will cover carbon neutral and net zero architecture, social equity and other innovations that transform ideas and processes to address climate change. Tailored for the building professional but everyone is welcome. To see all events in the series, click here for a flyer. This is hosted by AIA Central Valley.
