Zero Energy – A Foundation of Resilient Communities

Join NBI and partners at Rose Villa Senior Living in Portland for an event hosted by Zero Energy Ready Oregon for Sustainable Building Week. Participants will gain a better understanding for how designing to meet zero energy standards at the community level can make neighborhoods more resilient during extreme weather events, natural disasters and in the face of climate change. In this moderated panel discussion, representatives from Green Hammer and Rose Villa — including residents — will share some of the considerations made and lessons learned when designing and building The Oaks. They will share some of the ways in which their next collaboration, Trillium Townhomes Zero Energy Neighborhood, will be similar and different. This free event includes light refreshments and RSVP is requested.
