Net Zero Future

"Net Zero Future" explores the dynamic field of net-zero (NZ) buildings - buildings that produce as much (or more) energy than they consume. What seemed impossible only a few years ago is a reality today, as more and more NZ buildings come online. Jim Young, a veteran technical expert in energy use in buildings, explores such topics as smart buildings, data analytics, energy-efficient lighting systems, lighting and daylighting controls, energy standards (e.g., ASHRAE 90.1), and renewable energy sources (e.g., photovoltaics, solar hot water). With case studies of successful NZ projects, technical reports, new products and technologies, mobile apps, and more.
