International Zero-Energy Housing

Since buildings are major energy users, zero-energy building concepts are one of the major potential contributors to a sustainable energy system. This presentation from innovolve presents an International Zero-Energy Housing Initiative, demonstrating that the concept works for a wide variety of dwelling types in various climates. After the examples, the presentation introduces some of the technologies used, and what needs to be done to have a massive zero-energy housing movement.
