Join us for an afternoon of Energy Democracy and the built environment. 

King County GreenTools Roundtable: Kicking Off Community Engagement in Energy Democracy
Feb 4, 1-4:30pm at Centilia Cultural Center. Register and More info

Come learn about Energy Democracy and the built environment, including a Shift Zero update on the 20 by 2020 Building Challenge and HDC’s aligned Exemplary Buildings Pilot for Affordable Housing.
Denise Fairchild, President of Emerald Cities Collaborative, will lead a conversation and workshop on building the movement for energy democracy. The event features an update from Zack Semke and Steve Gelb on the partnership between the 20 by 2020 Building Challenge and HDC's new Exemplary Buildings Pilot, working to chart a pathway to ultra-energy efficiency that is equitable and financially sustainable for affordable housing providers. 

The 20 by 2020 Building Challenge is a campaign by Shift Zero, Passive House NW, Housing Development Consortium, King County GreenTools, and other partners to promote the development of at least 20 Passive House and net zero buildings, 20,000 square feet or larger in size, by 2020 in King County. 
Congratulations and thank you to the following 20 by 2020 projects pledged so far:
  • Pax Futura
  • Uptown Passive House Apartments
  • Built Green Net Zero Group Entry
  • Solis
  • 400 Westlake
Get involved! Help with 20 by 2020 outreach to affordable housing and market rate developers, industry leaders, and jurisdictions in King County about Passive House and ZNC building as a cost-effective means to deliver healthy, high performance buildings. Contact:
