Organized by members of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA), BuildingEnergy attracts more than 3500 building professionals with its cutting edge, vetted content and open, honest discussion of successes and failures. The conferences accredited educational sessions are rigorous, the high level trade show is engaging, and the three days of networking leads to new colleagues and life-long friendships.

Be Seen - Be Here.
BuildingEnergy is the only conference where architects, engineers, designers, planners, builders, policymakers, manufacturers, and installers work together to determine the future of our built environment. Conference sessions range from emerging trends in renewable energy to deep energy retrofits of commercial and residential buildings. BuildingEnergy annually attracts over 3,500 attendees.
Founded in 1974, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) is today the region’s leading membership organization promoting sustainable energy practices in the built environment. We as professionals in the fields of renewable energy and building embrace whole systems thinking as the path to sustainability.
Our work is vital to increasing sustainability, especially in the building sector. In the United States, the building sector accounts for nearly half of all energy consumption. It also produces nearly half of all greenhouse gas emissions, making it the largest single contributor to climate change. To shape the built environment is to shape the future not only of our cities and towns, but also of our planet.
