A Zero Energy Building: Leslie Shao-Ming Sun Field Station at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve

Case Study / April 25, 2012 / Zero Net Energy

One of the explicit energy goals for this building was to achieve net-zero carbon emissions on a recurring annual basis. The most significant strategies employed to maximize energy conservation focused on the building’s cooling, heating, and lighting systems. Due to the warm climate, the building’s largest energy load is cooling.
