"The Future of Energy" is devoted to exploring key questions facing designers, developers and other professionals who are concerned with energy, efficiency and sustainability in the building industry, according to the release. The collaborative effort examined energy both discursively and thematically, addressing such issues as how problems of the future of energy are framed and how these problems are conceived and discussed.
