Full Description

Can a net zero energy building be one story? Two stories? Building type, façade and site conditions all contribute to net zero energy capabilities in a multistory building. Envelope needs, occupant needs and system efficiencies are all part of a building’s energy consumption. This article discusses a two story building in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and illustrates the available building floor space that theoretically can be supported by a roof-mounted renewable energy (solar) technology.
