The slate of presenters at the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association's (NESEA) 32nd annual Building Energy Conference and Trade Show in March features some of the nation's leading authorities on climate change, renewable energy and green building practices, including Ed Mazria, an internationally recognized architect, educator and author of The Passive Solar Energy Book.
Mazria, senior principal of Mazria Inc., is one of 180 experts scheduled to speak at BuildingEnergy07 (BE07) at Boston's Seaport World Trade Center, March 13-15, 2007. He is the founder of Architecture 2030, a U.S.-based, non-traditional and flexible organization focused on protecting our global environment by using innovation and common sense to develop and quickly implement bold solutions to global warming. The ‘2030 Challenge’ issued by Architecture 2030 states that all new buildings, developments and major renovations should reduce fossil fuel consumption by 50% and that all buildings should be carbon-neutral by 2030.
‘Driving the issues of renewable energy and integrated building design, NESEA's BuildingEnergy07 Conference is pulling together people committed to taking on climate change,’ says James P. Batchelor, president and CEO of Arrowstreet, and co-chair of BE07.
The event is expected to draw over 2,500 attendees for three days of workshops, sessions, a free public forum and networking opportunities, along with a trade show featuring cutting-edge green technologies and solutions to climate change. BuildingEnergy07 offers a wide range of benefits for renewable energy and green building professionals including architects, builders, city and town planners, systems designers, developers, facility managers, investors, policy makers, real estate professionals, and others interested in renewable energy and green building practices.
