BuildingEnergy Boston Conference + Trade Show is now just one month away! It is Boston’s premier event for professionals and practitioners working on energy efficiency initiatives, high performance buildings and renewables. Hosted by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA), this year’s event is March 7-9, 2017 at the Seaport World Trade Center. Register at nesea.org/be17.
Our very own Andrea Love, Director of Building Science, will be speaking on the 2030 Commitment and Alejandra Menchaca will be participating the Lightning Round discussing our Glazing and Winter Comfort Tool.
The AIA 2030 Commitment: Building Energy Literacy
The AIA 2030 Commitment has impacted not only how we design, but also how firms practice by integrating performance information into the design process. This session is relevant both to those interested in learning more about the Commitment and to current signatories, and will cover new tools and developments, such as the online performance tracking tool, the Design Data Exchange. See how the AIA 2030 Commitment has made an impact on the culture and practice of three different organizations and share their paths to greater literacy and understanding about building energy.
