Cost-Effective ZNE Retrofit Solutions at Net Zero Conference (NZ21)

The 8th Annual Net Zero Conference (NZ21) is back in 2021 as a hybrid event on September 14 -16, 2021. This year brings more world-class education sessions on net zero, zero carbon, and climate resilience, inspiring keynotes from sustainability leaders worldwide, an interactive virtual expo hall + outdoor in-person expo featuring industry-leading companies, professional networking with industry leaders, virtual tours of net-zero buildings, with attendees from 40 U.S. states and 53 countries.

Integral Group is proud to be represented by Associate Principal Pia Engel-Moss and her colleagues at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in NZ21’s virtual offering in the session:

Cost-Effective ZNE Retrofit Solutions and ZEV in Underserved Markets

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 | 1:00 PM – 12:00 PM PDT | Online

Improving climate equity is an emerging policy imperative at the national level. Zero net energy retrofits are of key importance for building decarbonization and are more challenging than ZNE in new construction. Buildings will also be increasingly interactive with the transportation sector as the latter is electrified.

This panel will describe a small commercial ZNE retrofit toolkit that provides replicable, integrated whole-building retrofit packages that enables small commercial multi-floor office spaces to achieve energy use intensities equivalent to ZNE through cost-effective, underutilized technologies and controls; case study examples of successful commercial building retrofits in the Bay Area which have been leased out in record time; and a modeling case study of single-family residential ZNE retrofits and vehicle electrification in two disadvantaged neighborhoods in Fresno.
