Zero Net Energy (ZNE) Resources
What is ZNE?
A Zero Net Energy (ZNE) commercial building produces as much energy from on-site renewable sources as it consumes, thus moving toward a goal of total energy independence. ZNE can be achieved through a variety of renewable technologies and practices, including:
- High performance design
- Cutting-edge energy efficiency measures
- Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems
- Self-generating power
