Zero Net Energy
Zero Net Energy Commercial Buildings Initiative Goal: Generate as much energy within a commercial building as it consumes by 2025.
This initiative was enacted via The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Its aim is directed at commercial buildings and is a very ambitious goal. Achieving Zero Net Energy Buildings would be accomplished by dramatically reducing commercial building energy demand and meeting remaining energy needs from renewable resources.
In just its first year, several Blue Chip companies, including WalMart, Target, Home Depot and Petco, are already applying technologies developed by this alliance and are developing showcase stores leading toward zero-energy performance.
