About this talk

Green building is growing exponentially as the federal government and major cities like Chicago and Seattle join private owners in requiring new buildings to meet stringent sustainability benchmarks like the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) criteria. To meet this surge in demand, architects are employing not only proven clean technologies like wind and solar power, but new ones including nanotechnology, biotechnology and other emerging technologies. The convergence of green building and clean technology is creating not only significant improvements in human and environmental health, but major economic opportunities as well. Our panel of green building experts will provide insights into the costs, benefits and performance of the latest green building technologies. You'll learn about new green building technologies including insulating nanocoatings and aerogels, self-cleaning and depolluting materials, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and quantum dot lighting, organic thin-film solar cell technologies, and more. Speakers: George Elvin, Director, Green Technology Forum Greg Kats, President, Capital-E Amanda Tullos, Sustainability Consultant, Green Building Services Kelly Gearhart, Principal, Triple Green Building Group
