"Approaching Net Zero Energy at the Lowest Possible Cost”
With Peter Amerongen of Habitat Studio and Workshop

Solar Seminar, April 14, 2010
Grant MacEwan University
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Getting as close as possible to Net Zero Energy here on the northern prairies can be a daunting and expensive challenge. With our cold weather and long winter nights, it requires a careful blend of conservation in all its forms, passive and active solar collection, and solar electricity. Having worked through the obstacles to net zero energy for three successful projects to date, Peter Amerongen of Habitat Studio and Workshop has begun to identify a logical series of steps for designing for maximum net energy reduction at the lowest incremental cost. The sequence applies also to net-zero ready and near zero projects.
