As governments of all scales consider options for meeting deep greenhouse gas reduction goals, attention has turned to how to achieve zero energy or zero emissions from new construction in the building sector, which is responsible for more than 40% of emissions in most urban areas. This webinar will examine the policy and technical drivers for these codes, the varying structures for already published low/zero carbon codes and policies, and the complex role of renewable generation in implementing these codes as mandatory requirements.
