High sustainability and resiliency goals have good merit and are the right thing to do for our environment, but they do not come easy and require sound planning, detailed studies, and a commitment to changing the way we produce, procure, and use energy in our facilities.

This second installment of the Path to Net Zero Facilities will focus on design consideration and site impacts, financing and grant opportunities and review of both constructability and return on investment (ROI).
