Net-Zero Building Speaker Series

Friday, January 8, 2016 - Friday, March 4, 2016
Location:
Centennial Centre & College of the Rockies
Address:

64 Deer Park Ave, Kimberley BC

Net-zero energy homes and buildings are within reach – people across Canada and around the world are already building them and living in them. Wildsight’s net-zero speaker series brings experienced net-zero builders to Kimberley and Cranbrook to share their knowledge about how we can make our buildings sustainable in the long term, while living more comfortably and in a healthier environment. Even in our cold climate, we can have buildings that generate as much energy with solar PV as they use in a year.

In 2016, join us for public one-hour presentations to learn the basics and get inspired or join our half-day sessions for professionals to dive deep and ask questions in a small group format. Anyone with an interest can attend the detailed professional sessions. Public presentation admission is by donation and professional series tickets are $25 per session. Register for the professional sessions.

Full details for the series are at wildsight.ca/netzero.
