Change was the theme of this year's historic political election and when it comes to protecting the economy, the environment, and the public's well being - change is a necessity.  We need to change the way we build, design and operate our buildings. 

Buildings produce almost half of the carbon dioxide emitted in the US each year.  They consume 75% of the electricity generated.  The good news is they can do better - a lot better.  LEED certified buildings use 24%-50% less energy, produce 33%-39% less carbon dioxide, consume 40% less water, and recycle or reuse 50%-70% of their solid waste. Come and learn how.

Michael Shilale will describe why existing buildings are prime opportunities for reducing carbon emissions and energy use.  He will discuss the LEED-EB rating system and strategies for implementing improvements in building systems, water and energy use.
