Net Zero Accelerator 2020

Jul 1 - Dec 31 | Los Angeles, CA, USA
We guide, pilot + promote building technology innovation to empower our net positive future.

About this Program

The US Green Building Council - Los Angeles is launching the 2nd year of the Net Zero Accelerator to pilot and promote technologies that help make zero carbon, zero energy, zero water, and zero waste buildings a reality.

The 2020 program is focused on building decarbonization (materials & operations), clean construction (waste & efficiency), and occupant wellness for all building types (commercial, institutional, multi-family, affordable housing, etc.).

Large gaps exist between net zero building policy and current technologies in use. This program bridges those gaps by identifying viable technologies, positioning them for success, and accelerating their market entry in the greater Los Angeles area.

Not your typical accelerator - we aim to drive adoption of net zero solutions, today. We pair you with experts to encourage scalable solutions, promote awareness of your solutions to the right audience, and focus a strong emphasis on placing technology pilots with building partners that support a net positive future.

There is relevant curriculum (brand + storytelling, sales + biz dev, pilot readiness, project finance), which helps empower you to make the right connections to pilot and place your solutions. We don't focus on getting you investment. We focus on getting you customers.

The 2019 cohort is tracking over 30 pilots with our pilot site partners.
