Join the world’s leading experts in zero energy and zero carbon buildings, those who are creating the market-based solutions that are driving a growing movement to define the future of the built environment.  Getting to zero energy and zero carbon is a movement that will transform the built environment by mid-century. Policy drivers, emerging technologies and advanced design and operational practices are resulting in ultra-efficient buildings beyond anything we have seen before.

The number of zero energy (ZE) buildings, those that are so energy efficient they only consume as much energy as can be produced from onsite renewable energy resources, is doubling each year. With 40% of global carbon emissions coming from buildings, cutting energy use in buildings equates to low-carbon buildings that will help curb the impacts of climate change. While this market is still relatively new, it is poised to develop rapidly. Research estimates that worldwide zero energy building revenue is expected to exceed $1.4 trillion annually by 2035.

On Oct. 9-11, 2019, leading policymakers, design professionals, building owners and commercial real estate representatives, and others will gather at the 2019 Getting to Zero Forum.Participants will share perspectives on the growth of ZE, learned about best practices for successful projects and collaborated on opportunities for ZE to transform the built environment.
