Net Zero Solutions

Considering that buildings are the primary consumer of energy many progressive organizations are pursuing a Net-Zero Energy goal for their facilities.

This aggressive goal can be accomplished by significantly reducing energy use through the incorporation of energy-efficient strategies into the design, construction, and operation of new buildings and commencing retrofits to improve the efficiency of existing buildings.

The concept of a Net Zero Energy Building, i.e., “a building that produces as much energy as it uses over the course of a year”, has recently evolved from research to reality. There are however, currently only a few buildings that meet the criteria to be called “Net-Zero Energy”.  As a result of advanced 3D Energy and Daylight Modeling, improvements in construction technology, building controls, and renewable energy systems, the design and construction of Net-Zero Energy buildings has become more practical.

Green Ideas Net-Zero Energy Process

  1. Orientation
  2. Envelope
  3. Mechanical Systems
  4. Renewable Energy
  5. Building Energy Systems Commissioning

In pursuing this new standard of building operation, we assist in the lifecycle planning for the building that begins in the design phase and continues through operation and maintenance. A crucial element towards the achievement of this goal that is commonly overlooked is the holistic approach that should begin in the programming phase to clearly communicate to all parties that a Net-Zero Energy goal will be achieved.
