    Achieving net zero energy at scale gb12 111512 Achieving net zero energy at scale gb12 111512 Presentation Transcript

    • Tom Hootman, AIA, LEED AP BD+C David Okada, PE, LEED AP Shanti Pless, LEED APRNL, Director of Sustainability Mechanical Engineer NREL, Commercial Buildings Research Group
    • 1. Review trends for achieving net zero energy buildings2. Adopt key practices in delivering net zero energy projects3. Overcome cost, technology, and perception barriers4. Transform the delivery process to mainstream net zero energy buildings
    • Introduce net zero energy approach6 best practices for net zero energy 1. Performance-based procurement 2. Predicting energy use 3. Passive architecture and load reduction 4. Low energy active systems 5. Integrated renewable energy 6. Zero energy operation
    • “In five years, anyone would be crazy to design abuilding that isn’t green. But I’ll bet you that ... in fiveyears [it] won’t just be about green buildings. It willbe about zero net energy buildings, and abouttechnologies to increase the amount of excess energybuilding owners can sell on the grid.”- Former President Bill Clinton, Greenbuild Keynote Address, November 2007
    • WHO IS WORKING ONNET ZERO ENERGY?
    • HOW IS NET ZEROENERGY DEFINED?
    • Net Zero Site Energy BuildingNet Zero Source Energy BuildingNet Zero Energy Emissions BuildingNet Zero Energy Cost Building
    • WHAT TYPE OFPROJECTS CANACHIEVE NET ZEROENERGY?
    • WHAT TYPE OFPROJECTS CAN’TACHIEVE NET ZEROENERGY?
    • A: Within the Building FootprintB: (A +) Within the SiteC: (A /B +) Imported RenewablesD: (A/B/C +) Off-Site or Purchased RECs
    • HOW MANY NETZERO ENERGYBUILDINGS ARETHERE?

    • I want a green buildingDesign a LEED <rating> buildingDesign a building to use 30% lessenergy than ASHRAE 90.1-2004Design a building to use less than25,000 BTU/sqftDesign a net zero energy building
    • Project-Centered Delivery

    • New Buildings InstituteEnergy Performance of LEED for NewConstruction Buildings (March 2008)
    • “G1.2.2. Neither the proposed building performance nor thebaseline building performance are predictions of actualenergy consumption or costs for the proposed design afterconstruction. Actual experience will differ from thesecalculations due to variations such as occupancy, buildingoperation and maintenance, weather, energy use notcovered by this procedure, changes in energy rates betweendesign of the building and occupancy, and the precision ofthe calculation tool.”– ASHRAE Standard 90.1
