Speaker Series: Matt Young “Net Zero By Accident”

Join MDCRES this January for a presentation that will point the way for any homeowner to take on their own energy efficiency projects in 2018. 

By day, Matt Young is a materials researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.  However, being in the renewable field was no guarantee for success on his home projects.  Matt spent a lot of time learning by doing.  When he set out to research a rooftop solar hot water system for his 1962 house, he had no idea he was taking the first step to a net zero home.  Matt’s story will show how he navigated energy challenges such as heating, generation, and insulating a basement.  By keeping track of data along the way, he recently found that he had achieved Net Zero.
