Last Thursday, three NCBPA member companies got together to present a webinar based on the in-person presentation planned for the UNC Clean Tech Summit earlier this year that was unfortunately canceled due to snow. The webinar was put together to share valuable insight into the role of zero net energy (ZNE) buildings in the broader clean tech economy.
