MCAN in collaboration with USGBC MA, MAPC, and NEEP, is holding an interactive roundtable for municipal staff, elected officials, and committee members to share obstacles and solutions to becoming zero net energy communities. This conversation will be used to guide USGBC MA's upcoming research on the cost of net zero buildings. Cost has been a question that has come up for stakeholders looking into net zero for their communities, and this is an important launching session to make the research most helpful to you.
According to MA Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020, buildings consume more than 50% of energy used in Massachusetts and account for over 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. As climate change accelerates, municipalities need strategies to combat the carbon emissions from their building stock.
Zero Net Energy Building (ZNE Building) is one solution. ZNE Buildings produce as much energy as they use throughout a year. Cities such as Cambridge and Amherst are leading the way by developing ZNE plans.
Join us for a productive conversation to make sure you as a town official have the information and strategies you need to make this climate solution a reality in your town or city!
