Program: Sunnylands—When Zero is Just the Start

Conference: Net Zero Conference 2018

Location: Los Angeles

Date: September 13

Time: 3:30 P.M. – 4:15 P.M.

Sustainable design leaders Patrick Thibaudeau and Leighton Deer of HGA join Lance O’Donnell of o2 Architecture in this presentation on the expansion and renovation of the historic Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, California.

In approaching the renovation, The Annenberg Foundation Trust set aspirational goals to meet net zero energy in one of the most extreme desert climates in the country. The presenters will highlight how they “started at zero”—instead of ending at zero—to develop a sustainable vision that produces more energy than it uses through low energy use intensity (EUI), renewable energy planning, water balance planning, carbon neutral design, zero waste construction, and red-list compliant materials.

Net Zero 2018 is the nation’s largest net zero building conference focusing on the energy, water, waste, and transit sectors.
