A zero-energy building, also known as a zero net energy (ZNE) building, net-zero energy building (NZEB), or net zero building, is a building with zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually.[1] Buildings that produce a surplus of energy over the year may be called “energy-plus buildings” and buildings that consume slightly more energy than they produce are called “near-zero energy buildings” or “ultra-low energy houses”.
Traditional buildings consume 40% of the total fossil fuel energy in the US and European Union and are significant contributors of greenhouse gases.[2][3] The zero net energy consumption principle is viewed as a means to reduce carbon emissions and reduce dependence on fossil fuels and although zero energy buildings remain uncommon even in developed countries, they are gaining importance and popularity.
Most zero energy buildings use the electrical grid for energy storage but some are independent of grid. Energy is usually harvested on-site through a combination of energy producing technologies like solar and wind, while reducing the overall use of energy with highly efficient HVAC and lighting technologies. The zero-energy goal is becoming more practical as the costs of alternative energy technologies decrease and the costs of traditional fossil fuels increase.
The development of modern zero-energy buildings became possible not only through the progress made in new energy and construction technologies and techniques, but it has also been significantly improved by academic research, which collects precise energy performance data on traditional and experimental buildings and provides performance parameters for advanced computer models to predict the efficacy of engineering designs.
The zero-energy concept allows for a wide range of approaches due to the many options for producing and conserving energy combined with the many ways of measuring energy (relating to cost, energy, or carbon emissions).

    This website is GREAT if you want to install your own solar system: https://installoffgridsolarsystem.com/

  2. Karen Frank says:

    if anyone is looking for some alternative energy sources then I recommend guide from this website since it's very well explained and also if you have any question they're supports is great [Awesome Plan Here >>>https://plus.google.com/u/3/113778429958471787540/posts/67MrRb1YGej ]. These days electricity cost a lot so why not save your money

  3. iupetre says:

    It's coming up with that upfront cost without going into debt that's the real hurdle.

  4. noctanol says:

    My gas has a 14 dollar base payment.

  5. sherio1980 says:

    what was the total cost then? how much do you think the system will cost today?

  6. Martin Maclean says:

    How do I work out how much solar I would need to go off grid and produce enough energy for my house to .

  7. Mark Osborne says:

    Awesome

  8. MIKIS ZEZAS says:

    Thats the right way!sorry i forgot something…Fuck goverment!!!!

  9. Kim Diana says:

    Yeah….a Chevy Volt! We have a 2014 Volt.

  10. Phonzo Cisne says:

    would you buy the Chevy Bolt or Tesla Model 3?

  11. Terry Rodbourn says:

    You should buy a Tesla or a Leaf!

  12. CCGtv says:

    Hey, I just checked out your videos, you feature a lot of dope content ! Check out some of my channel and subscribe if you like the content. Thank you !!!

  13. 4TIMESAYEAR says:

    Just curious, who are you working for and what do you make a year? Would the average middle income "Joe" be able to do this?

  14. cinema writer says:

    I hope you have a TESLA now instead of the fault checkout their CPO program for some less expensive demo and pre-owned cars.

  15. busa says:

    makes no sense save the world lower the prices asshole

  16. Harry M says:

    you could use charcoal for your grill. it may be a fuel but it's not a fossil fuel.

  17. aaron raiford says:

    That bar graph was impressive.

  18. sasa says:

    great vid!

  19. Eduardo Méndez says:

    How much cost in USD/KW and investment return in years?? thanks an congratulations

  20. ben burton says:

    everyone forgets cradle to grave c02 emissions. even solar pv panels emit carbon…
    think its 0.080 grams per kwh. manufacturer transport installation and the guy that burned fossil to get there. It adds up!!
