Zero Energy School Design

Zero Energy School Design
There are over 100,000 K-12 schools in the U.S. and these buildings are, on average, over 50 years old. Many of these schools will need to be replaced in the coming years and it is critical that designs today can meet the needs of the future. Designing schools to achieve Zero Energy presents an opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve the learning environment in classrooms, and save districts money. Zero Energy schools incorporate the latest advances in energy efficient building design and use on-site renewable energy to produce more electricity than they consume each year. In this course we will learn about the Zero Energy design process and develop a design for a Zero Energy elementary school to be built in Vermont. Approval Required (Credit/No Credit)
