Presenters: The people who designed and built the net zero energy homes in Edmonton and Red Deer.
Outcomes: See what it takes to make your next house net zero energy or net zero ready. Discover what can be done right now to design and build sustainable housing for this growing market.
Topics: Learn from the experts about what they did, what they learned, what they are now doing, what are the challenges and opportunities, how to maximise performance and minimise costs, and what it takes to make a sustainable net zero energy house, what are the benefits to the builder and to the consumer, what are visitors to the houses saying.
Learning: Integrated healthy housing with passive solar design, ultra energy efficient construction and appliances, and
commercially-available solar energy systems that produce more energy that the home uses on an annual basis.
Results: Homes that address occupant health and comfort, energy, water and material resource usage, affordability, green house gas (GHG) emissions, and environmental impacts to water, land and air.
