DOE Wants to Define Zero Energy Building

January 6, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

DOE Energy ManageThe Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking to develop a common definition for Zero Energy Buildings (ZEBs). In a notice published in the Federal Register, DOE says a broadly accepted market definition of ZEB boundaries and metrics is foundational to efforts by governments, utilities, or private entities to recognize or incentivize zero energy buildings.

DOE seeks comments and information related to the zero energy (or net-zero) definitions, nomenclature, and implementation guidelines.
