Net Zero 2017: Energy + Water + Waste Conference
Early bird registration ends June 20. AIA members receive a 5% discount

The Net Zero Conference, Energy + Water + Waste, is the nation’s largest event dedicated to net zero building design. Attendee registration has nearly doubled in each of its first three years, thereby showing the building industry’s increasing interest in a net zero future. Verdical Group, the conference organizer, is projecting the host venue to be at capacity again with 600 attendees for the fourth annual event in August 2017. This annual conference draws a wide array of high level decision makers and will also provide five Continuing Education Units for AIA, USGBC, and LFA professional credential holders.

Net Zero 2017 will include a full program of net zero case study presentations from nationally leading AEC firms, two panels, an exhibitor table expo, and high quality networking opportunities. Morning and afternoon keynotes include Arup’s Director for Global Foresight, Research and Innovation, Dr. Chris Luebkeman, and the Honorable R. Rex Parris, Mayor of the City of Lancaster. The conference features thought leaders from the International Living Future Institute, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), New Buildings Institute, Gensler, BNIM, Integral Group, Southern California Edison, UCLA, LADWP, SoCalGas, and more.

The conference host venue, the IBEW-NECA Net Zero Plus facility, was featured in a recent PBS documentary narrated by Ted Danson on net zero buildings and is one of the few net positive buildings in the country, producing more energy that it uses annually. A tour of this groundbreaking facility will be given by IBEW-NECA technical staff on conference day so attendees can see the net zero strategies used in person that make this project one of the highest performing buildings in the country.

After the conference educational sessions, enjoy a drink, music, and networking at a Happy Hour in the Hall.
