NYC's Net-Zero Schools

Monday, Jun 18, 2012

NYC's Net Zero Schools - The Collaborative Process
P.S. 62 in Staten Island will be the first net-zero energy school in New York City and one of the first of its kind world-wide. The 66,000-square-foot, two-story school will serve 444 pre-kindergarten through fifth graders. When completed, the cutting-edge building will harvest as much energy from renewable on-site sources as it uses on an annual basis.

Designed to comply with the SCA Green Schools Guide in lieu of LEED certification, the project will be NYC School Construction Authority’s first “sustainability lab”. This exploration into ultimate sustainability and the subsequent evaluation of SOM’s exercise will provide substantial benefits to the City’s School Design Program and help achieve PlaNYC goals for significant reductions in global warming emissions. SOM’s design offers an energy-use reduction of 50% over a SCA standard public school.

Net-zero energy success can only be verified once the building is occupied, since it is based on the real-world data collected from the building over the course of one year and differs significantly from LEED and other similar measures.
