California is going through one of its most seismic shifts in building energy policy and design. The move towards full decarbonization of the building stock has started and the policy, technical and financial implications are being developed under our feet. Come hear about the policies, programs and projects leading this revolution, discuss where we are, where we are going and what it means for you.

Climate Chats are brought to you free by WORK Petaluma.


Noon-1 PM in the WORK Library. Feel free to bring a bag lunch.
