Technologies and approaches to Net Zero Buildings

Johnson Controls

In time, net zero status may not be reserved for a few demonstration projects using expensive emerging technologies. It will be possible to achieve significant energy savings at competitive costs, using readily available, commercially mainstream materials, equipment and systems. Energy use is minimized and then the balance needs to be matched with cost effective renewable energy.
Finally, since occupant behavior and the growth in plug loads in buildings may influence the potential certification or validation of a building’s net zero status – and certainly the economics – occupant engagement and building  performance will be critical.
