A presentation on a definition framework for Net Zero Energy given at the NASA Net-Zero Energy workshop June 5-6, 2012.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Large Hospitals shows that existing reliable technologies and design philosophies can be used to reduce energy use in large hospitals by up to 50% of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004 recommendations.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities can help in the design of new healthcare facilities that are 30% more energy efficient than current industry standards using ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999 as a benchmark. This saves energy but also supports the other design goals important to healthcare facilities: to improve the patient experience, enhance the healing environment, increase staff retention, lower construction and operating costs, contribute to an environmentally conscious building design, and improve the bottom-line performance of the healthcare facility.
This guide was created to help healthcare facility decision-makers plan, design, and implement energy improvement projects in their facilities. It was designed with energy managers in mind, and presents practical guidance for kick-starting the process and maintaining momentum throughout the project life cycle.
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 document provides an example request for proposal (RFP) for a Department of Energy (DOE) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Ingress/Egress Project with a Site Entrance Building and Parking Structure. The RFP has been annotated by NREL to demonstrate the project’s steps that follow NREL and DOE’s Energy-Performance-Based Acquisition process.
This step-by-step flowchart provides information on selecting a control strategy for miscellaneous electrical loads.
