Net-Zero Energy Buildings

LEAD-IMAGE1

Due to the current government mandate and possibility of implementation success, the Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) is working with the New Buildings Institute in 2015 on a research project entitled “Net-Zero Energy Buildings: Building Intelligent Controls Driving Success”.

 

The objectives of the research project are to determine the frequency, types, and characteristics of systems in net-zero energy buildings along with establishing energy saving targets. This research will examine strategies and technologies applied in large commercial and multi-unit buildings, to identify net-zero energy (ZNE) best practices that can become the references for developers, manufacturers, property managers, and property owners.

 

WHAT IS ‘NET-ZERO’?
Though definitions vary, a net-zero energy building is a term broadly applied to a building that produces as much energy as it consumes over a given time period. Net-zero energy buildings are, by design, very energy efficient and their remaining low-energy needs are often met by either on-site or offsite renewable energy.
