  • Case Studies: Zero Net Energy Non-Residential Buildings
    April 12, 2015
    1 comments

    Six non-residential buildings were designed and built to perform at zero net energy (ZNE) consumption over the course of a year. Extensively monitored under the Pacific Gas & Electric Company's ZNE Pilot Program, each has proven to meet or exceed that level of performance for at least one year of post-construction occupancy.

    These case studies show that building industry leaders who target this new level of building performance can meet this challenge, reinforcing California's reputation for being the incubator and early adopter of transformative ideas with practical feasibility.
