Design Opportunities for Sustainability
Above and Beyond ZNE
Zero Net Energy design achieves many goals including reduction of carbon emissions related to energy generation and money savings achieved through site produced electrical power.
Designing Zero Net Energy buildings can also be a path to significant other sustainable building strategies to satisfy both California Green Building Standards, Title 24, Part 11, and and LEED. This presentation will provide insight into some ways that designing for ZNE can provide connections to greater sustainability in buildings and highlight opportunities to achieve sustainability by design.
