The BuildingEnergy Boston Conference + Trade Show is an event designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building and design, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. It brings more than 1,000 industry leaders and emerging professionals together to learn from and share ideas with each other. The theme of BuildingEnergy Boston 2020 is Transforming Existing Buildings, with additional emphasis on decarbonization and on bringing more diverse communities into the discussion. This year's event has been rescheduled and will now take place as a virtual conference and trade show, Wednesday through Friday, August 12-14, 2020.
Watch last year's galvanizing keynote session, Carbon Drawdown Now! Turning Buildings into Carbon Sinks - featuring Chris Magwood (Endeavour Centre) & Ace McArleton & Jacob Racusin (New Frameworks) - to see the quality of content and speakers that define BuildingEnergy Boston. This presentation will help you understand how buildings have the potential to become the world’s fifth largest carbon sink, rather than a leading emitter, and why your work is essential for climate justice and social equity.
Attendees represent dozens of industries including architecture, engineering, building, design, consulting, policy, finance, auditing, installation, construction, and education. This diversity encourages broader conversations and taking a whole-systems approach to address the challenges facing our built environment.
BuildingEnergy Boston 2019 was held on March 14 & 15 at the Westin Boston Waterfront. More than 1,200 attendees gathered to learn about and discuss sustainability in the built environment through the theme of Know-How. The 2019 Conference Chairs developed a session line-up focusing on practical skills and immediately applicable knowledge—the innovations we're working on, recent lessons learned, skills we wish all our colleagues had.
