Green Building Alliance Showcases Net-Zero Energy Buildings June 27 In Pittsburgh

The Green Building Alliance will showcase 9 Net-Zero Energy Projects in Western Pennsylvania at a special event on June 27 at the Frick Environmental Center, 2005 Beechwood Boulevard in Pittsburgh from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.
According to the New Buildings Institute Net-Zero Energy (also called Zero Net Energy) buildings are ultra-efficient new construction and deep energy retrofit projects that consume only as much energy as they produce from clean, renewable resources.
This involves a balance of energy demand reduction, incredible efficiency, and the addition of renewable energy sources.
The Pittsburgh region is rich with projects who have solved the NZE puzzle or are working to figure it out. Come learn from them, and enjoy food, drinks and networking after the program.
Projects featured in this showcase include:
-- Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens: Center for Sustainable Landscapes, SEED Classroom, and Exhibit Staging Center
Learn about strategies and lessons learned from these project representatives. Join the Alliance for an afternoon of compelling content, inspiring education, and networking fun with drinks and appetizers!
