Renovation in the New Energy Economy: 

Finding the Right Metrics for Getting to Net Zero

Matt Grocoff, Esq. LEED GA

Called one of "Greater Detroit's most progressive personalities", Matt is host of Greenovation.TV, a contributor to the Environment Report on public radio and the green renovation expert for Old House Web. He is a net-zero energy and adaptation consultant, founder of Mission Zero Fest and a nationally renowned advocate and authority on energy and green renovations for existing homes. Matt has a Mission Zero goal to eliminate the negative environmental impact of every home in America.

He is a sought-after lecturer and a frequent source for journalists on the topic of net zero energy, historic preservation and home rehabilitation.

Matt’s  home was selected as one of USA Today's "Best Green Homes of 2010" and The Atlantic called it "sustainable perfection." It is America's oldest and Michigan's first net-zero energy home, meaning it annually produces more energy than his family consumes.  More at www.missionzerohouse.com
