Bronzevile International Summit Smart Energy Journey Map

It is now easier than ever to lead your community toward a zero energy future. Zero energy projects, communities and cities combine energy efficiency and renewable energy generation to consume only as much energy as can be produced through renewable resources over a specified time period. Achieving zero energy is an ambitious yet increasingly achievable goal.  Greenbuild 2018 will partner with  Bronzeville Community Development Partnership to showcase the BRONZEVILLE SMART Energy Experience. 

This attendee experience is designed to guide your visit at Greenbuild on topics that are of specific interest to you. It includes education sessions, distinctive products, solutions and technology, and experiential learning opportunities for innovators, community economic development practitioners, local stakeholders and civic entrepreneurs supporting the next level of sustainability initiatives for the Bronzeville South Lakefront region.
