Net-zero energy buildings are those which, on an annual basis, use no more energy from the utility grid than is provided by on-site renewable energy sources. These buildings use 50% to 70% less energy than comparable traditional buildings. The remaining energy use comes from renewable sources, like solar panels or wind turbines incorporated into the facility itself.

The course provides application knowledge of the design and operating principles for energy efficient buildings and available technologies and systems to achieve net-zero energy building design. Building design strategies, review of current policy and regulation, energy, environmental and economic assessment of building’s performance, energy efficiency in HVAC, lighting and appliances, and on-site renewable energy sources are reviewed.
