THE FUTURE OF NET-ZERO ENERGY BUILDING

 

From August 9 - 12, Wikistrat will run an online simulation with different industry experts from the fields of construction, energy, and design to guide regulatory tools towards achieving Net-Zero construction for Past, Present, and Future Building

 

About the simulation

 

Background

Buildings generate around 30 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and with more nations pledging to become carbon neutral, the topic of Zero Energy Buildings (ZEBs) has garnered increasing attention. Various governments have already included ZEB policies in their environmental initiatives, and this has proven an effective solution to move toward a more sustainable future.

Despite the general acceptance of ZEB initiatives, definitions for “zero energy buildings” remain generic and are not yet standardized across governments. Considering the various types and ages of buildings, governments will need to refine, standardize, and enforce ZEB regulations to effectively achieve their climate goals.

From August 9 to August 12, Wikistrat will run an online simulation with different industry experts from the fields of construction, energy, design, and more with the goal of exploring different regulatory solutions and providing recommendations to governments on how to best modify their existing regulatory tools to match the goal of achieving NetZero Building.
 

Goals

  • To map and explore regulatory solutions for different buildings’ ages (past, present, and future) that will help to achieve NetZero Building Energy goals.

  • To provide recommendations for governments and other relevant authorities on how to modify and change their regulations to fit the different types of buildings and their age.

 

Participation

The simulation will run online on August 9-12, for a period of four days. During this period, participation is highly flexible. You will be able to participate from anywhere, at any time, for as long as you want.
