In simplest terms, Net Zero Energy (NZE) buildings produce as much energy as they consume. However, it isn’t enough to design and build a net zero energy building. Long term success is based on the interdependence and collaboration between design, construction, operations and occupant behavior.
“You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that created it.” – Albert Einstein
In a presentation hosted in our Atlanta office, Peter Rumsey, CEO and Founder of Point Energy Innovations, along with Newcomb & Boyd engineers, Adam Bare and Matt DiPiro, examine strategies that enable projects to attain net zero energy while being sensitive to cost and operations. Topics include PV system sizing, lighting, daylighting, intelligent building systems, and HVAC system optimization.
