Net Zero Greenfield versus Net Zero Brownfield – What Really is Possible?
technology and materials has allowed what was once considered impossible to
be possible - the development of "Net Zero Energy" buildings. Net
Zero energy buildings consume less energy than they create on an average
annual basis. Some airports, (ex. SFO) are trying to develop Net Zero
facilities, but are starting with new construction (as opposed to
retrofitting existing buildings). Research is needed to understand what is
possible with technology and materials available for achieving Net Zero for
both new buildings and existing facilities.
The objective of
this research is to develop guidance on the implementation and application of
technology and materials available for achieving net zero energy for both new
buildings and existing facilities. This guidance should take into account
state and local regulations and limitations.
