Next Renewable and Sustainable Building Design Course

(fees - $1,200 special offer)

​Approximately 40% of North American Energy is consumed in buildings. Almost all those buildings can be economically converted to conserve that energy (Net Zero Energy) and eliminate the associated Green House Gas production. This course outlines the methods to move buildings (new and existing) to high energy performance or net zero performance and to significantly reduce direct energy costs, and greenhouse gas emissions caused by building energy requirements.
