In Case You Missed It – Zero Net Energy “Call For Innovators” update
In case you’ve missed it, we’ve been making continual progress on our InnovateNetZero and MarketZero projects! After our Fall 2016 “Call to Innovators,” reaching out for new energy efficiency technologies, we narrowed down the results based on product efficiency, technology readiness, ease of installation, and site applicability. On each project, we have selected between 5-8 finalists with compelling technologies for these projects.
Since choosing the finalists, we have been working with our design teams led by ARUP and RMW architects to implement the products into their initial designs. To review our ZNE (Zero Net Energy) – Technology and Strategy Report, that details the entire process thus far, please click on the link below. Stay tuned for future blog posts that feature major updates of each project!

What does it mean to be ZNE?
Zero Net Energy means the amount of energy provided by on-site renewable energy sources is equal to the amount of energy used by the building.
