ZNE CASE STUDIES
Production and oversight of Zero Net Energy Case Study Buildings, three-volume set of case studies documenting in detail the design, construction and performance of 17 successful commercial ZNE buildings (11 of which are full electric).
ZNE BUILDER RESOURCE GUIDE
This Zero Net Energy Builders' Resource Guide was developed as a reference for builders interested in advancing their homes towards zero net energy (ZNE) performance, as an outgrowth of PG&E's demonstration efforts with production builders.
ZERO ENERGY HOMES PRODUCTION BUILDER PILOT
Design, management and implementation of the Production Builder Pilot, a program which provided detailed consulting assistance, incremental cost buy-down and energy performance monitoring for specific homes built by national and regional production home builders. The program succeeded in demonstrating that ZNE can be done in a production builder environment at low incremental cost and without disrupting the “look and feel” of the home.
PROP 39 ZNE OUTREACH & EDUCATION PROGRAM
Design, management and implementation of the Proposition 39 Zero Net Energy Program for K-14 public schools in California: this program featured ZNE design consultation and project cost buy-down of several participating schools retrofit to ZNE performance levels; ZNE training seminars, both live and Web based which reached more than 1000 participants; case studies and supplemental materials
ARCHITECTURE AT ZERO
Leadership and management of Architecture at Zero, an annual architectural design competition now entering its ninth year emphasizing ZNE design for site-specific projects. The competition is organized as a teaching tool for the design community; it has featured work with sites as diverse at San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, UC Merced and the Estuary and Ocean Science Center in Tiburon, CA (see www.architectureatzero.com)
