How do we prepare our buildings and infrastructure for disasters and climate change impacts? What are the next steps to create a resilient Northwest?

PNWER Roadmap to Resilient, Ultra-low Energy Buildings in the Pacific Northwest
PNWER is advancing the development of a “Roadmap” to improve resilience and energy efficiency for new and existing buildings through “net zero” emissions construction targets and deep energy retrofits of existing buildings by 2030. Efficient buildings encourage job creation, affordability, competitiveness, and resilience. Through consultations with all levels of government and the private sector, the Roadmap will develop market-driven strategies to promoting energy efficiency in each jurisdiction by focusing on policy options; market driven solutions; best practices; innovative technologies and construction materials; industry capacity building; and workforce developments.
