GANA joins Zero Energy Commercial Buildings Consortium

Post Time:Dec 19,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:165

The Glass Association of North America announced today it is a new member of theZero Energy Commercial Buildings Consortium, a group of organizations interested in advancing energy efficient commercial building technologies, practices and policies. The Consortium is working with the United States Department of Energy to develop and deliver technology, policies, and practices to achieve a market transition to Zero Net Energy Commercial Buildings by 2030. The effort is in response to the creation of the Zero Net Energy Commercial Buildings Initiative by Congress in 2007, according to a Dec. 18 GANA release.

The Consortium was formally launched in 2009 as the outgrowth of a multi‐year organizing effort. The Consortium brings together a broad range of commercial building stakeholders to collaborate with DOE to accelerate technology innovation, process change, and market transformation to advance zero energy performance in new and existing commercial buildings. As a broad‐based public/private partnership, the Consortium builds on the membership of the High‐Performance Commercial Green Buildings Partnership, convened by ASHRAE in early 2009 in response to an earlier DOE invitation to form an industry advisory group, according to the release.
