Net Zero Residences for the (88 to) 99%

Thursday, Feb 2, 2012

Net Zero homes are achievable now and can be done in a range of square footage costs from the very posh to the affordable. Three architects with experience designing, building and monitoring Net Zero homes will discuss their experiences working to achieve the Net Zero goals. There is much we can all learn from their work.


Learn about the use of a broad range of design techniques, including common sense, passive siting, overhangs, efficient system design, predictive modeling and more. Many of these are low or no cost, others add to the square footage costs. The challenges of plug load and user behavior as well as the initial design challenges will also be discussed. All of these strategies lead to lower operating costs and an annual net zero energy consumption. These architects have repeatedly been able to achieve the ultimate net zero goal that we all aim for in the distant future, yet they are able to deliver these projects today,many of them on a reasonable budget.
