Passive Solar Design for Net-Zero
The greenest, most-advanced buildings incorporate passive solar design features.
One technical goal of the Sustainability movement is to bring net-zero energy buildings to a reality. These buildings would be ultra energy efficient and any energy requirements would be met by renewable energy. As we stated earlier, we target and regularly find 30% energy savings in existing energy use. With high energy prices, technological development and good decisions made in the design and construction stage, new buildings could probably achieve even greater savings. That said, for a net-zero building, this still leaves a considerable amount of energy to be supplied by renewable systems, which is expensive.
Go Sustainable Energy believes that net-zero energy buildings should become a reality in the coming years, and that to do so economically will require new design methods. One of these is the integration of passive solar design into new buildings. Our deep and expert understanding of building systems uniquely positions us to provide this service. Integrated with a team of knowledgeable architects, HVAC engineers and active solar companies, net-zero energy buildings can become a reality.
