Zero Energy Building Award

Description: 

The Zero Energy Building Award seeks the best building in the Northeast (USA) that produces as much power as it needs to heat, cool, illuminate and provide other functions required by occupants over the course of a year. The goal of the competition is to honor a building that offers great comfort and amenities with little impact on the environment.

Zero-energy buildings – buildings that produce as much energy as they consume – represent the cutting edge of environmentally responsible construction. These buildings, which require state-of-the-art energy-efficient construction and renewable energy systems such as solar and wind, are challenging to design and build but can offer comfort and amenities while reducing the building’s impact on the environment.
