US Department of Energy Guidance on Zero Energy Buildings


Looking for more information on what to expect in a Zero Net Energy building? The U.S. Department of Energy has used an extensive process of stakeholder engagement to carefully define Zero Energy Buildings in their new document, A Common Definition for Zero Energy Buildings, released today.

Per the Definition, such a building is “an energy-efficient building where, on a source energy basis, the actual annual delivered energy is less than or equal to the on-site renewable exported energy.” Read more in the full report, available on DOE’s website.
