Sustainable architect Bruce Haxton and ED+C senior editor Michelle Hucal organized the Net-Zero Energy Building (NZEB) Expert Roundtable III: Cost Analysis and Cost Modeling teleconference to investigate some of the NZEB cost issues uncovered in the first and second NZEB Roundtable conferences in 2010. This session is focused on NZEB costs analysis and cost models for different building types.

This conference paper describes the creation of DOE's commercial reference building models and their use in simulation studies.
This report uses EnergyPlus simulations of each building in the 2003 Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) to document methods of modeling the entire U.S. commercial buildings sector (EIA 2006).
The purpose of this handbook is to furnish guidance for planning and conducting a highperformance building charrette, sometimes called a "greening charrette." The handbook answers typical questions such as, "What is a charrette?", "Why conduct a charrette?", "What topics should we cover?", "Whom should we invite?" and "What happens after the charrette?". Owners, design team leaders, site planners, state energy office staff, and others who believe a charrette will benefit their projects will find the handbook helpful.
This paper illustrates the challenges of integrating rigorous daylight and electric lighting simulation data with whole-building energy models, and defends the need for such integration in order to achieve aggressive energy savings in building designs. Through a case study example, we examine the ways daylighting – and daylighting simulation – drove the design of a large net-zero energy project.
Rising energy costs and the desire to reduce energy consumption dictates a need for significantly improved building energy performance. Three technologies that have potential to save energy and improve sustainability of buildings are dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS), radiant heating and cooling systems and tighter building envelopes.
