Presentation Overview:

School districts are striving to produce as much energy and water as they consume (Net Zero). Case studies will discuss how Oakland Unified School District, with community support and involvement, is implementing Net Zero Energy at an urban high school campus to provide on-site energy production for the school; and how Evergreen School District continues to increase high performance at their middle school campus by aiming for Net Zero Water, in addition to the existing Net Zero Energy Administration building – the first Net Zero Energy/Emission public school building in California. This session will also discuss the legal and financial challenges of Net Zero Energy and Water, how these challenges can be overcome, and how Net Zero helps improve curriculum, increase community involvement, and solve budget issues.
