Institutions, healthcare systems, cities, and even developers are striving to build a carbon neutral future. Net Zero Energy buildings will play a key role in achieving this goal. Many people are familiar with small Net Zero buildings, but we need to decarbonize the built environment at a massive scale. Join us as we outline the process to achieve NZE and demonstrate examples of this NZE scale-shift, including detailed examples from 4,000 to 4,000,000 square feet.
Jacob Knowles leads BR+A’s sustainability initiatives firm-wide.

He is a champion of net zero standards and often consults to city and state agencies on carbon neutral zoning and net zero codes. He is also currently a board member of the Boston Society for Architecture.
