The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled Community Renewable Energy Success Stories: Net Zero Energy Communities on Tuesday, October 16, 2012, from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. Eastern Time.
There will be two presentations that deal with net-zero-energy communities in California and Hawaii:
1.) University of California Davis West Village: The Largest U.S. Net Zero Energy Community
UC Davis West Village ultimately is a new housing development that will ultimately occupy about 200 acres near the University of California (UC) Davis. The development will have apartment buildings for nearly 3,000 students and approximately 500 single-family houses for both faculty and staff. Apartments for the first 800 students opened in August 2011 and an additional 500 students moved into apartments in September 2012. Energy efficiency measures combined with onsite solar photovoltaic electricity generation will achieve the goal of zero net energy from the grid on an annual basis.
2.) Hoa‘âina: Hawaiian Communities in Social & Environmental Harmony
Kaupuni Village is an example of bridging cultural values with the desire for sustainable living. At this webinar you will learn how the Hawaiian Home Lands Trust is developing diverse housing products to meet the housing needs of a modern day Native Hawaiian family.
