Learning from Performance


Achieving net zero energy buildings requires knowledge of best real world strategies. A dataset from New Buildings Institute includes about 70 buildings that, on average, use half of the energy required by comparable buildings and identifies commonalities of design and technology decisions to provide insight into the results of energy efficiency strategies.1 This national, geographically diverse dataset includes a California university campus building whose design process achieves aggressive energy savings on the way to net zero performance.
