Grid-integrated buildings
Grid-integrated buildings are emerging as a major priority and opportunity for communities. Utilities are increasingly looking to incentivize grid-integrated buildings. Homes, offices and the utility grid will start working more as a unified and coordinated system, rather than as separate and distinct entities. The result is a new paradigm for energy management, and new opportunities for savings and services. This session will introduce grid-integrated buildings, what the implications are for builders, and how they can generate revenue.

The economics of zero energy homes: single family insights
While many homeowners love the idea of a home that produces all the energy that it needs, most people assume that a zero-energy home is prohibitively expensive. However, changes in technology effectiveness and costs make zero energy homes much more financially accessible than most people realize. This session will present the results of in-depth cost-optimization research for zero energy and zero energy ready approaches to show what is possible for low-cost construction. Further, we'll explore what cost thresholds matter to consumers and how these homes compare to those thresholds.

High performance HVAC systems: installation, service, and sizing
Size matters, especially with home heating and cooling systems. When it comes to HVAC systems, bigger is not better. Yet, oversized systems might be the most common HVAC problem we find in the field. From poor air circulation to shorter system lifespan, an oversized system can end up costing you big time. Join us to examine the pitfalls of oversizing (sometimes really bad stuff happens) and learn why a correctly sized system is the right choice for the long run.
