The Business Case for Net Zero Energy

This program explores the business case for net zero energy buildings with the goal of inspiring owners, developers, designers, and the rest of the building industry to embrace the concept. This will be accomplished through the in-depth analysis of a case study -- 435 Indio Way in Sunnyvale – the location hosting this event – which was a recent design/build renovation of a 1970's era existing building. The presentation will showcase strategies for managing the costs of financing, designing, building and operating a net zero energy renovation from the perspective of the developer, design team and contractor. The goal of this presentation is to prove that net zero energy buildings can deliver returns equivalent to business-as-usual real estate development. 

The program will include a self-guided tour of the building.
