Beschrijving Net Zero Energy Building

What do we mean by net zero energy? Zero operating energy? Zero energy costs? Zero emissions? There is no one answer: approaches to net zero building vary widely across the globe and are influenced by different environmental and cultural contexts.


Net Zero Energy Building: Predicated and Unintended Consequences is the book to present a comprehensive overview of variations in "net zero" building practices. Drawing on examples from countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, and China, Hu examines diverse approaches to net zero and reveals their intended and unintended consequences. 


Existing approaches often focus on operating energy: how to make buildings more efficient by reducing the energy consumed by climate control, lighting, and appliances. Hu goes beyond this by analyzing overall energy consumption and environmental impact across the entire life cycle of a building – ranging from the manufacture of building materials to transportation, renovation, and demolition. Is net zero building still achievable once we look at these factors?


With clear implications for future practice, this is key reading for professionals in building design, architecture and construction as well as students on sustainable and green architecture courses.
