International Living Future Institute

Electric Power and Your NZE Project [On Demand]

Net Zero Energy is a powerful tool in accelerating high performance, low energy use buildings, but is the right end game simply a world of NZE buildings? What role might the grid play, and how will a high performance world deal with the ebbs and flows of energy demand, particularly where time and date of use don't match that of generation? What is the ideal future state of energy use?


Learning Objectives

1: Describe the benefits of NZE as it currently stands

2: Understand the basics of grid interaction with buildings and time of use

3: Comprehend potential options for energy storage at a large scale

4: Describe quantitative impacts of reducing energy use at a wholescale level
