This week we take a look at how the clean energy transition is impacting our built environment, as seen through the eyes of an architect with more than two decades of experience in green design. Our guest is Phil Kaplan, Principal at Kaplan Thompson Architects in Portland, Maine and the current Chair of NESEA, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (and a fellow podcaster). Our wide-ranging conversation touches on net zero buildings, integrated design, the economics of residential solar, the role of energy storage and more. We close with a preview of NESEA's big conference and trade show next month in Boston.
