Net-Zero Tech: ‘Buildings Producing More Energy Than They Use’ (Video)

What if our buildings produced more energy than they used? From the United States to Hong Kong, these projects prove it can be done.

zero-energy building (ZE), also known as a zero net energy (ZNE) building, net-zero energy building (NZEB), net zero building is a building with zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site,[1][2] or in other definitions by renewable energy sources offsite, using technology such as heat pumps, high efficiency windows and insulation, and solar panels.
