Energy analysis of net zero energy buildings: a case study

Abstract


  • The building sector is a significant contributor to global energy usage and

    environmental emissions. Advanced building design, optimal selection and sizing of

    building components, and energy efficient operation are among the key ways of

    significantly reducing overall building energy demand. Achieving reduction in

    energy demand is a key directive of the net zero energy building concept. Building

    designs dedicated to meeting net zero energy building requirements are becoming

    more commonplace as a path towards reducing the overall emissions from the built

    environment. This work analyses the energy demand of a net zero energy office

    building and compares it with a more standard commercial building design.

    Through analysis of energy use, the effectiveness of energy efficiency measures

    incorporated in the net zero energy building are evaluated and results provided.
