iiSBE Net Zero Built Environment 2014 Symposium
17th Rinker International Conference (March 6-7, 2014)
The iiSBE nZBE 2014 Symposium was held in March 6-7th 2014 as an opportunity for design professionals, researchers, industry, and government to exchange information on research, case studies, and emerging best practices centered on the net zero built environment concept strategy. Although net zero energy was the major theme, the working group also invited collaboration on other net zero concepts such as net zero water, net zero carbon, net zero emissions, and others.
The papers in the net zero symposium explore the question of how net zero should be implemented from several perspectives. Scales for zero net analysis range from building to urban region. The breadth of subjects range from the technical to business to policy development. The published papers are in the different areas of NZW/ Water Efficiency, NZE/ Net Zero Energy Concepts, Energy Efficient Strategies/ Technologies, Impacts/Assessment Methods, Case Studies / Residential-Commercial, and Case Studies / Educational Facilities.
