Gather, learn, get back to work
Join Us March 4-6 2014, Seaport WTC, Boston
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.
The first two days of BuildingEnergy 14 have been a BLAST. Help us close out BE 14 with the busiest Thursday yet. Get the trade show for free here with this promo code: IWILLINVITEMYFRIENDS
The show floor is open 10am to 4pm, and the closing forum (open to all) runs from 4pm to 5:30pm.
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. Join us at the Seaport World Trade Center and advance your practice.
Plenary Space, Wednesday, March 5th, 8:45am to 10:30am
We’re delighted to announce that EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy will also be delivering remarks at BE14. Read Conference Chair Marc Sternick’s full announcement here.
Also adding prestige to the Keynote is Amanda Sturgeon, Vice President and Living Building Challenge Program Director as our Keynote Speaker. Ms. Sturgeon has been at the forefront of advancing the practice of architecture and design, and we’re excited to hear her plans for how we might continue to advance sustainable, accountable design into the next century.
Opening Forum: Cleantech Startup Expo
Harborview Ballroom, 6pm to 8pm, Tuesday, March 4th.
For this year’s opening forum, think “Shark Tank,” but instead of vying for investment money, six cleantech startups will get feedback from a panel of experts and field questions from the audience.
The startups will have an hour to mingle with attendees and get warmed up (5-6pm) before the rapid fire pitch session begins. Each company will then have 3 minutes to make their case to the panelists, and 5 minutes for Q&A.
