Zero Net Energy


The SCP gives special consideration to project teams desiring to achieve net zero energy for their building project. Zero Net Energy (ZNE) in simplest terms is offsetting energy usage such that your energy production meets or exceeds energy use on a net annual basis. To reach ZNE, project teams incorporate passive design strategies to reduce energy projections (or load) as low as possible, and then install renewable energy sources to offset the remaining energy load. Passive design strategies may include (but are not limited to) using advanced day lighting, natural ventilation and passive solar design.
