  • As more renewable energy resources are added to the electric grid, operation and reliability become more difficult for the grid operators. Building designers are in a unique position to create buildings that improve this issue, rather than add to it. Various high performance buildings standards incentivize using less energy, but timing of energy use is not addressed, nor are peak demands. For example, the current framework for the Net Zero Energy buildings credits each kWh of energy production the same - regardless of when it's produced. There are improvements and strategies that building designers should be aware of to improve their integration with the electric grid and enhance renewable energy integration into the grid. This session aims to cover the Net Zero building-grid integration issues at hand, offer a few solutions, and discuss how passive building techniques can handle some of these issues.
