Gather, learn, get back to work
BuildingEnergy (BE) is the most established, most cross-disciplinary renewable energy and high-performance building conference and trade show in the northeastern United States. NESEA members drive the content from questions that come up in their professional lives.
BuildingEnergy is a place to shape a vision of a sustainable built environment and to do the whole systems thinking it will take to get there. It’s rigorous—no greenwashing here—and it’s a blast.
NESEA requires an array of actual performance data for projects featured in BE presentations. How do we know we’re winning if we don’t keep score? Have a look at our case study guidelines here.
Student Design Competition
For the first time, NESEA will be sponsoring a Student Design Competition for college and university students. The competition involves four properties selected by the City of Holyoke, MA, and thousands of dollars in cash prizes for the top entries. Find out more.
Zero Net Energy Building Award
Our annual $10,000 prize is announced at BE. You also have an opportunity to hear more about the projects directly from the builders, architects and/or engineers involved. See entries (past and present).
