The Design conversation includes size of homes, orientation, site analysis, real costs of project, including life span of products, travel, longterm use, and site locations as healthy or not.
 
The Engineering conversation will explain the existing areas that contribute to climate abuse and a 1-2-3 approach for homes, which is Conserve (as in insulate before you isolate); Combine (as with generators that also give heat and cooling); and then Create (as with solar panels or wind turbines) energy to provide the lowest impact that will be secure and affordable in the future.
