The U.S. Energy Department recently launched the Better Buildings Zero Energy Schools Accelerator. Six school districts, including Douglas County School District, plus two states and several national organizations are working collaboratively to develop zero energy design that is cost-competitive to conventional construction in the education sector and in local communities across the nation. A Zero Energy Building is an energy-efficient building, where on a source energy basis, the actual delivered energy is less than or equal to the onsite renewable exported energy.
