A building that produces energy equal to or greater than the energy it consumes over the course
of a year is said to be a net zero energy building. Three elements in design and construction are
necessary to enable a building to achieve net zero energy.
Zero net energy construction is the newest wave in the effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions and
conserve energy. Currently, buildings consume 40% of the total energy in the US and Europe.
- High performance building envelope
- Efficient heating and cooling systems
- Power generation, i.e. photovoltaic or wind
