In a recent survey by New Buildings Institute on resource needs for designers and green building advocates, case studies topped the list of the most requested educational tools. On behalf of the CPUC, NBI recently published five new case studies that demonstrate private developers’ interest in ZNE and highlight the opportunities for ZNE in existing buildings.
- North Face and VF Outdoors Campus
- Environmental Innovation Center
- California State Lottery Office in Santa Fe
- Bagatelos Architectural Glass Systems Manufacturing Facility
- 435 Indio Way
These studies provide details about making the business case for ZNE through operating costs and income, and provide more financial information than has been available in previous case studies published by NBI. This group of case studies represents both retrofit and new construction projects in the public and private sectors.
