This involves a balance of energy demand reduction, incredible efficiency, and the addition of renewable energy sources. The Pittsburgh region is rich with projects who have solved the NZE puzzle or are working to figure it out. Come learn from them, and enjoy food, drinks and networking after the program. Projects featured in this showcase include:

Partnering with USGBC and AIA, GBA makes it easy for our members to report continuing education credits. Please provide your GBCI and/or AIA number so we can auto-report your credits (for applicable events). Non-members can still earn continuing education credits but will need to self-report their GBCI CEUs.
