BRACKETING RESIDENTIAL NET-ZERONESS" DURING DESIGN STAGE"

Rohini Brahme, Gregory Dobbs, Thierry Carriere

Abstract: A net-zero residence is highly dependent on the lifestyle of the occupants, building construction, equipment operation and maintenance, and the weather conditions. With increasing interest in net-zero energy consumption, it is important to base any claim for the net-zeroness" of a residence during design-stage on a set of simulation runs instead of just one run for best case scenario (in terms of occupant behavior
