Commercial zero energy buildings

An energy efficient commercial building uses about 60% to 70% less energy than an average commercial building. Buildings can meet this target by improving building envelope design, efficient material, innovations in design and technologies. On the other hand, in addition to reduced energy cost they generate energy through renewable sources and other smart technologies. Laboratories, […]

Electrochromic windows

Electrochromic windows in zero energy buildings allows an automatic control of the amount of light and heat that passes through the windows of buildings and vehicles. They can change from transparent to dark by an electric signal. Electrochromic windows can be darkened (a small voltage applied to the windows will cause them to darken) in […]
