For the past seven years and counting, the summit has annually offered cutting-edge education focused on the latest trends in green building, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and related topics pertinent to commercial, multifamily, and residential projects in Montgomery County. The target audience includes building owners, property managers, developers, energy contractors, and other sustainability professionals working in Montgomery County and the larger DC, Maryland and Virginia area. Last year’s virtual event brought out nearly 330 attendees.
This year’s summit will take place virtually May 4-6. The theme for 2021 is “Resiliency, from Building to Community.” It will explore strategies, technologies, and case studies focused on enhancing the resiliency of the commercial, multifamily, and residential built environment. Not only must we adapt to changing climate hazards in our buildings, but our economy and public health must become more resilient as well. Together, our community can adapt and become more resilient against changes to our regional and global climate, while striving to reach the County’s ambitious goal of zero carbon emissions by 2035.
The summit will include breakout education sessions, a keynote address, topical networking salons, interactive brown bag lunches. All education sessions will be approved for GBCI and AIA continuing education credits.
