Buildings Move Towards Net Zero Quicker

High performance buildings are showing they can attain net zero energy in just a year. Net zero buildings typically generate most of the power they use from renewables onsite.

The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) created a Net Zero Energy Building Certification in 2011 to recognize the green buildings. Each certification requires performance monitoring for a full year after occupancy.

Net Zero certified projects must meet some of the non-energy requirements of the Living Building Challenge, including site, beauty, and equity. Read more about these beautiful and sustainable buildings at Greenbiz.com.
