CENTERVILLE, Mass. — The National High Performance Building Conference (NHPB) is scheduled for Dec. 5-9, 2011 in Washington, D.C., as part of Ecobuild® America. In its third year, the conference is sponsored and produced by AEC Science & Technology®.

“High performance building is constantly evolving,” said George Borkovich, Ecobuild principal. “Roofing systems. Lighting control software. Net-zero energy buildings. Architects, engineers, and contractors scrutinize every facet of the industry in search of what’s new today and what’s on the horizon for tomorrow.”

The need for the latest information on green products and technologies extends to federal agencies that are directed under Executive Order 13514 to support the growth of a clean energy economy.

“Locating the National High Performance Building Conference in Washington, D.C., has always been a priority for AEC,” said Richard C. Vendola Jr., Ecobuild principal. “Under EO 13514 every federal agency must meet aggressive energy, water, and waste reduction targets. They are tasked with reducing their greenhouse gas pollution and leverage federal purchasing power to curb waste and save taxpayers’ dollars. AEC works diligently to bring the newest products and technology to their front door.”

The NHPB Conference offers more than 40 sessions to educate, promote best practices, and highlight new technologies. The vendor exhibits highlight new energy products including building controls, energy management systems, energy efficient lighting, and services.

A sample of the sessions, seminars, and symposiums includes:

• Commissioning Existing HVAC Systems for LEED and Energy Savings

• Collective Cooling: Incorporating Cool Roofs into Green Building Systems

• Prefabrication & Modularization in the Construction Industry

• Corporate ROI of Energy Management in Buildings

• Net-Zero Energy Building: The Next Frontier in Green Building
