Design Features of Net Zero Emission Buildings

No Expiration


Buildings are one of the largest energy-consuming sectors, accounting for as much as 40% of total energy consumption. Therefore, improvement in building energy efficiency has become an important option in developing low-carbon growth strategies. High energy efficiency in buildings can be achieved using various design options, such as passive design features, composite mechanical systems that support passive design features, installation of renewable energy generators on site, sustainable building operations and maintenance processes, and other aspects like life cycle costs and sustainability of the whole building design.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify commonly used definitions, regulations and industry benchmarks
  • Describe the four definitions of net-zero energy
