Location Varies
(See Description)

Join Energy Trust on April 18 as we set the stage for net-zero energy design. We will review established best practices and share updates on how Seattle's Bullitt Center - the first commercial building to target Living Building certification - is performing, a year into occupancy. Based on popular demand, Energy Trust will be hosting group webinars in several locations outside Portland. Attendees may gather in person to watch the live presentation remotely, and Energy Trust will have program representatives onsite to facilitate questions. Space is limited at each site and a wait-list will be created once capacity is reached. In order to provide this opportunity to as many people as possible, please limit registrations to five per firm.
