Illinois Green Alliance hosted a primer on the code pathways to zero energy buildings in the region. Energy codes play a pivotal role in transforming the market toward zero energy buildings. This webinar takes a look at the growing interest and trends around policy and code adoption to get to zero locally and across the country.

This program was designed for all of our colleagues in the green building industry to get up to speed on the status and definitions stretch codes, zero energy and zero carbon codes and how we can achieve these code standards for residential, multi-family and commercial buildings in Illinois. Our panel of experts addressed which jurisdictions have made progress towards zero energy codes across the country and the data that's been gathered to date.
