Conjoined with the North East Sustainable Energy Association’s BuildingEnergy 15 conference, the 2015 Net-Zero North American Leadership Summit builds on the highly successful inaugural 2013 Summit. (See videos below.) We are holding this year’s Summit in the State of Massachusetts as it is a prime example of how public, private, and non-profit organizations joined efforts to implement an unprecedented, statewide commitment to NZE. Many of these activities were directly influenced by the 2013 Summit.
The goal of the 2015 Summit is to continue this momentum, providing a forum for innovative builders and stakeholders to collaborate and combine efforts across North America, accelerating the market adoption of net-zero residential and commercial buildings and communities.
This event will be a 2-for-1 with the epic NESEA BuildingEnergy conference. NESEA is a robust regional organization with an active interest in supporting zero net energy practices, including its annual $10,000 Zero Net Energy Building Award, and a very popular online BuildingEnergy Masters Series course, Zero Net Energy Homes. NESEA’s BuildingEnergy 15 conference will attract 4,000 attendees from across the eastern United States and Canada, and offers a treasure trove of technical insights directly relevant to the Net-Zero Energy Coalition audience.

The goal of the 2015 Summit, as it was in 2013, is to bring together net-zero innovators in energy efficient technology, builders, developers, designers, product companies, utilities, and public agencies to continue identifying and pursuing opportunities to collaborate and combine efforts across North America to accelerate the market adoption of net-zero at the community scale.
Through an interactive exchange of ideas, the Summit will explore best practices, lessons learned, and successes. The 2015 Summit is structured around the key focus areas identified at the 2013 Summit: Policy, the Grid, Driving Demand, Finance & Real Estate, Education & Collaboration, and Products & Technologies.
The paired Summit and Building Energy programs represent an exceptional opportunity for a meeting of the minds between the two overlapping and complementary groups of innovative practitioners.
We are currently seeking net-zero energy leaders to sponsor the Summit and gain visibility with this cutting-edge group.
