UT: Salt Lake City's New Zero Home is One of the Most Energy-Efficient Houses in the US | Inhabitat | Net Zero homes | Scoop.it

There is a lot of greenwashing in the home building industry. But the Zero Home unveiled last week by Garbett Homes and Vivint is the real thing.


As reported by TechHive, The net-zero home in the Herriman suburb of Salt Lake City uses only as much energy as it produces.


What's even more impressive is that it was built for only $150/sf - about the same price it costs to build a conventional home.


The property is expected to sell for $400,000, which means you don't have to be a millionaire to afford it - and with energy bills being close to zero, that price tag doesn't seem bad at all.

Housing+ by C. F. Møller Architects: Zero-energy design

Housing+ by C. F. Møller Architects: Zero-energy design | Net Zero homes | Scoop.it

C. F. Møller Architects have designed a proposal for the pilot-project Housing+, for 60 zero-energy housing units on the Aalborg Waterfront. The design adhered to stringent energy goals through a combination of architectural design and user-focused technical innovation.

The Housing+ concept sets the ambitious target of a zero-energy housing scheme, which also includes the tenant’s primary household energy consumption. The complex will thus be 100% relying on renewables.

Central to the concept is the use of integrated energy-design to generate the concept of tomorrow’s housing, producing more energy than it consumes. This is achieved by optimizing the inherent passive gains of the main volume, and shaping it to take advantage of the orientation and potential for active solar energy-collection.


Visit the link for more images and details on this contemporary, green design that incorporates solar, passive strategies, and on-site renewable energy.

Early Energy Simulation: Don’t Design Your Zero Energy Building Without It

Early Energy Simulation: Don’t Design Your Zero Energy Building Without It | Net Zero homes | Scoop.it
U.S. Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB) were scarce five years ago, but the list is growing rapidly as the industry proves it can be done at lower upfront cost than most would guess.

Who this is for: Building industry stakeholders interested in the emerging landscape of zero energy buildings in the United States, and the drivers behind it. Architects in particular will find the suggested AIA resources helpful in understanding how their role on projects will evolve as high performance building requirements become the norm......
