Social Infrastructure: Apps for Climate Action
BuildZero's Climate Action Platform is soon ready for release.
Energy poorly understood by designers, builders and owners
Energy efficiency not a primary goal
Renewable energy production not a primary goal
Construction practices biased toward poor energy performance
Transform building to Zero Energy
Enable and accelerate adoption of Zero Energy Building
Elevate energy efficiency and production to primary building design goals
Inject data, knowledge and best practice into the design process
Provide easy-to-use, accessible tools for ZE planning, design and construction
Building Energy Matters
Buildings consume almost half of total US energy
Buildings account for 39% of US carbon emissions
Zero Energy Building works
Zero Energy Building (ZEB) dramatically reduces energy consumption and GHG emissions.
"Zero Energy - Produce What You Use" is a simple, bold, concept that is easily understood and embraced.
ZEB design integrates energy efficiency with renewable energy production.
ZEB is driving energy policy in progressive communities like California, Massachusetts, New York.
Revitalize building culture
Fill the Energy Knowledge Gap
Provide ZE templates, successes, inspiration
Remove barriers to ZE implementation
Provide knowledge, data and tools for ZE projects
Provide tools for ZE policy administration
Stimulate action. Make ZE easy.
Create a free, easy-to-use ZE project design framework
Provide best practice templates, guides and reference models
Create "Data Driven" tools to visualize, analyze and optimize ZE designs
