The John W. Olver Transit Center zero-net energy (ZNE) project is a high-performance building designed with reduced energy loads, passive design strategies, maximized efficiency of mechanical and electrical systems, and on-site power generation.
ASHRAE has a goal: net zero energy for all new buildings by 2030. What do engineers need to know to achieve this goal on their projects? How can the various engineered systems within a nonresidential building be integrated to achieve this goal?
