NBI has been tracking the zero energy building sector for over a decade and our annual Zero Energy Buildings List is just about complete, with nearly 700 zero energy verified and emerging buildings being tracked! Join NBI’s Alexi Miller and Kevin Carbonnier as they share the status of the zero energy market in the United States and Canada, including a technology review and the relationship between zero energy and zero carbon. The session features leaders from the Urban Sustainability Directors Network, and firms Perkins+Eastman and VMDO, along with ASHRAE, which will be opening their renovated zero energy HQ this fall. The speakers also share case studies that represent a market shift in size, scale, and scope of zero energy and carbon neutral buildings.
Targets for zero energy and zero carbon outcomes are growing exponentially. Recently, Grand View Research Inc. forecast $78.8 billion of growth in the global zero energy (ZE) building market by 2025. That’s compared to $8.04 billion in 2016, according to the report.
