The Fire Station Efficiency Solutions Package aims to assist municipalities nationwide to reduce carbon footprints, lower utility bills, and increase resiliency by selecting improvements that will reduce energy and water use in existing buildings by at least 20%. This toolkit is a product of a collaboration between the City of Atlanta and Southface Energy Institute. Through this solutions package, municipalities and fire departments will be equipped to plan and implement individual and portfolio-level upgrades.

It is still early in the collection and analysis of energy performance data, but it is already clear that high-performance commercial buildings—some "almost net-zero buildings"—can be constructed cost effectively, providing productive environments for occupants, reducing operating costs, and enhancing the competitiveness of commercial properties.
This paper describes how net-zero energy buildings will produce, during a typical year, enough renewable energy to offset the energy they consume from the grid.
This conference paper discusses four well-documented definitions of net-zero energy: net-zero site energy, net-zero source energy, net-zero energy costs, and net-zero energy emissions, along with pluses and minuses of each.
This paper introduces a classification system for net-zero energy buildings (ZEB) based on the renewable sources a building uses.
