Energy Measurement & Verification Tool Helps City of Raleigh Achieve New Levels of Energy Efficiency | Energy Efficiency | Scoop.it

You can’t manage what you can’t measure, as the saying goes, and it certainly holds true for energy consumption. But if you can measure, compare, identify, take action, verify impact.

The Future of Green Building May Be Closer than You Think

The Future of Green Building May Be Closer than You Think | Energy Efficiency | Scoop.it

Buildings that consume no outside energy are being developed today -- with existing technology. So much innovative work has been done in green building that a growing number of people are now shifting their focus from means to ends. Their goal: Create buildings that generate as much energy as they need to operate, called net-zero energy buildings (NZEB). Efforts to achieve NZEB are underway in all sectors -- government, academia, the military, not-for-profits and business -- and at all scales: residential, community and commercial. While it is still early days, the results have been impressive.
