Project Description and Objectives:
Commercial and residential buildings consume almost 40% of the primary energy in the United States or Europe and nearly 30% in China. To reduce the dependence of the building on the primary energy, several studies on energy-saving technologies have been done worldwide. On the other hand, renewable energy utilization was regarded as reasonable solutions to global warming, air pollution, and energy security. Through integrating the technologies of energy-efficient and renewable energy utilization in building, net-zero energy building is an innovative concept for a high-performance building.
