Website with information on what is anticipated to be the first
zero energy renovation of an existing building in the District
of Columbia. This building is one of the first in the United States to use sewer heat recovery (an energy technology that is more common in Europe.)
This five-page fact sheet explains how designing, building, and operating zero energy ready K-12 schools provides benefits for districts, students, and teachers.
Owners project requirements developed
Imagine a school so inviting that students want to come to school. Now imagine this school housed in a beautiful, light-filled building that produces more energy on an annual basis than it uses. Finally, imagine that the district built this school on the same budget as a conventional school, using typical materials, equipment, and tradespeople.
Sound too good to be true? Discovery Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia, is living proof that zero energy (ZE) schools are feasible, affordable, and sensible.
School districts and their design and construction teams have encountered and overcome challenges to achieving zero energy in school buildings. This five-page fact sheet explains how they did it.
This paper describes the development of energy efficiency recommendations for achieving 30% whole-building energy savings in K-12 schools over levels achieved by following the ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (over both the 1999 and 2004 versions of the standard).
This brochure describes the USD 422 K-12 School in Greensburg, Kansas.
This paper introduces a classification system for net-zero energy buildings (ZEB) based on the renewable sources a building uses.
This case study, on pages 69-70 of the attached report, provides information on upgrades and activities achieving efficiencies and cost savings in public schools. The report is the McGraw-Hill Construction SmartMarket Report: "Business Case for Energy Efficient Building Retrofit and Renovation," which is listed here: https://buildingdata.energy.gov/cbrd/resource/917.
