A zero-energy building, also known as a zero net energy (ZNE) building, net-zero energy building (NZEB), or net zero building, is a building with zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually.[1] Buildings that produce a surplus of energy over the year may be called “energy-plus buildings” and buildings that consume slightly more energy than they produce are called “near-zero energy buildings” or “ultra-low energy houses”.
Traditional buildings consume 40% of the total fossil fuel energy in the US and European Union and are significant contributors of greenhouse gases.[2][3] The zero net energy consumption principle is viewed as a means to reduce carbon emissions and reduce dependence on fossil fuels and although zero energy buildings remain uncommon even in developed countries, they are gaining importance and popularity.
Most zero energy buildings use the electrical grid for energy storage but some are independent of grid. Energy is usually harvested on-site through a combination of energy producing technologies like solar and wind, while reducing the overall use of energy with highly efficient HVAC and lighting technologies. The zero-energy goal is becoming more practical as the costs of alternative energy technologies decrease and the costs of traditional fossil fuels increase.
The development of modern zero-energy buildings became possible not only through the progress made in new energy and construction technologies and techniques, but it has also been significantly improved by academic research, which collects precise energy performance data on traditional and experimental buildings and provides performance parameters for advanced computer models to predict the efficacy of engineering designs.
The zero-energy concept allows for a wide range of approaches due to the many options for producing and conserving energy combined with the many ways of measuring energy (relating to cost, energy, or carbon emissions).

  1. I really like these types of homes. I think it is great that you are 100% self sufficient it may have cost a lot more but I think in the long run it will be better imo.

    on a different note some thing you might find interesting their are a lot of videos about people modifying their battery power tools into corded ones with a inverter and a bad battery so you can us wall power or battery power. I was thinking since you just use electricity that you produce this might give you a few more options and be a little more versatile with your battery powered items.

    I will be subscribing have a good one     

  2. A terrific video!. For being  one that has experienced oil embargo's in the past, I am personally an endorser of solar powered energy since the middle of the 1970's. I'd really love witnessing sun power destroy gas and oil prices as our chief source of energy.

    think it's worth it to stick only a few of these panels on a small townhouse roof?

    Very nice video and house and I like the charging port,very handy..We do run solar house too,I have just about everything solar and we drive nissan leaf.what a change and everything is cleaner,yes all the el.equipment starts..LOL..

  5. Awesome video! I am getting ready to build my first home and I want green. Got to keep the gas mowers though. 🙂 Call it a Near Zero Home hehe.

  6. Awesome! this video really pushes me to get there one day I am going to try this one day!

  7. MrJijack says:

    Thanks for the video. You have my ideal lifestyle. When I buy my own home, my first goal is achieving net zero energy.

  8. OK great video, but how much did it cost?

  9. Thanks for sharing your home and what you did to get to that point.  You still have the fact that solar will last 25 or so years they say. So the increased costs in upgrading your system when that needs to take place.  But as you said your investments paid off within 8 years.  So you could purchase 3 complete solar systems and come out ok.  As well cost of solar continues to dive.  Great stuff.

  10. My family and I have been researching net zero homes for a while. We're planning to relocate to the MD area. Do you have any thoughts on SIPS panels versus the traditional?

  11. Jemalacane0 says:

    How far can you go in your car? How are dense, overcast skies?

  12. Congratulations my brother, you've done an amazing job!!!

  13. "oh yeah – and they always start" haha

  14. Daniel Kim says:

    holy cow u r a genius!!! if everyone adopted ur inspiration example we would solve the global warming problem overnight :)

  15. YoWhatUpMike says:

    looks like you're ready for. the zombie apocalypse…but you live in Jersey so no firearms?

  16. ben burton says:

    everyone forgets cradle to grave c02 emissions. even solar pv panels emit carbon…
    think its 0.080 grams per kwh. manufacturer transport installation and the guy that burned fossil to get there. It adds up!!

  17. How much cost in USD/KW and investment return in years?? thanks an congratulations

  18. sasa says:

    great vid!

  19. That bar graph was impressive.

  20. Harry M says:

    you could use charcoal for your grill. it may be a fuel but it's not a fossil fuel.

  21. ryan says:

    makes no sense save the world lower the prices asshole

  22. I hope you have a TESLA now instead of the fault checkout their CPO program for some less expensive demo and pre-owned cars.

  23. dajiggiest1 says:

    Does solar panels make the roof leak? I have to watch your video over.

  24. 4TIMESAYEAR says:

    Just curious, who are you working for and what do you make a year? Would the average middle income "Joe" be able to do this?
