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.
Commercial building owners and operators have requested a standard set of key performance metrics to provide a systematic way to evaluate the performance of their buildings. The performance metrics included in this document provide standard metrics for the energy, water, operations and maintenance, indoor environmental quality, purchasing, waste and recycling and transportation impact of their building.
This paper introduces a classification system for net-zero energy buildings (ZEB) based on the renewable sources a building uses.
This handbook targets two primary areas for creating energy-efficient buildings: (1) How to interpret energy data to improve efficiency and performance; (2) How to use computation and programming to combine the use of spreadsheet or programmable analysis tools with data from on-site meter and sensor acquisition systems. The primary audience for this handbook is commercial building owners, energy and facility managers, financial managers, and operators with little to no experience in data analysis and performance monitoring. The secondary audience is software developers and energy service providers in the commercial building industry, as well as more experienced owners and managers who wish to improve how they visualize, analyze, and manage their building’s energy use.
