The Grace Period is Over: Zero at No Cost by 2030

The auto industry is on a clear path to providing all-electric, net zero energy transportation solutions by 2030. The adoption of electric vehicles is mushrooming, and the buildout of a nationwide infrastructure of charging stations is well underway.

Unfortunately, the housing sector is lagging behind. Incremental policies and incentives, including funding from the Inflation Reduction Act and 45L tax credit, are important, but will not get the job done, as they are too slow, incomplete, and vulnerable to shifting political winds.

This webinar will explore how to reach net zero in the housing sector by 2030 with sustainable design and construction practices and onsite, micro-grid renewable energy generation.

Sam Rashkin, former Chief Architect at the Department of Energy and founder of Housing 2.0 will explain how zero energy ready can be accomplished with one simple federal government policy change at no cost to the treasury while yielding massive economic, environmental, job growth and health benefits to the nation.

Also, Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman will offer COGNITION Smart Data market intelligence about net zero energy, water, and carbon trends, including consumer demand, preferences, and purchase patterns.
