Event Details

What do Janis Joplin and Green Building have in common?

That's right, they both started in Austin. We all know Austin as the live music capital, but many folks don't realize that Austin is also home to the world's first local green building initiative. Austin dabbled in green building before the days of LEED, and before the formation of the US Green Building Council. Hear how it all got started, and the future of Austin’s green building sector at the Clean Energy Entrepreneurs Network (CLEEN). Enjoy appetizers, drinks, and networking with local homebuilders, architects, real estate professionals, green building entrepreneurs and more.



Pliny Fisk, Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems

Pliny Fisk and Gail Vittori are widely recognized as the pioneers behind an Austin movement that spread throughout the US and internationally. They shaped the City of Austin’s first green building initiatives, and created the country’s first firm dedicated to sustainable design and life-cycle planning in the built environment.


Jason Ballard, Treehouse

Jason Ballard is the co-founder and current president of Treehouse, an Austin-born smart home improvement store offering only products held to the highest standards of efficiency, health and sustainability. Their store on South Lamar provides quality green products, from flooring and cabinetry to lighting and hardware.


David Carolan, Solid Green Systems

David Carolan is founder and president of Solid Green Systems, a leader in sustainable materials for home building. Working alongside architects, developers, builders, real estate agents and homeowners, they integrate their patented energy-saving wall and roof system into homes and buildings across Austin.
