Education is rapidly emerging as a leading sector among zero net energy (ZNE), high performance buildings. ZNE schools are highly efficient buildings that can meet all their energy needs with on-site renewable resources. Studies show that classrooms with sustainable attributes contribute to improved knowledge gain by providing a more comfortable, healthier environment for students and teachers. ZNE schools are becoming a living laboratory for students to better understand the nexus of technology, innovation, and the environment, bringing home the impact that our built environment can have on natural spaces. This one-hour webinar will focus on the benefits of ZNE, high performance schools so that practitioners understand the value and benefits they offer to students, teachers and communities.
