NetZero "Building as Power Plant"
|review by Ken Sinclair|
Edward H. Brzezowski, P.E., LEED AP Director of Engineering The Ferreira Group http://www.ferreiragroup.com/ is doing some very interesting work with Net zero Buildings. I feel the below web pages tell the story better than words. Clicking on the page icon below or the URL under each will provide dynamic data.
This is the most fascinating page to watch,
our new building has been running on 100% solar power (w/surplus) since startup on 7/12/06

Here's another link, BUILDING AS A LEARNING TOOL: FACILITY MANAGEMENT AND SIMULATION IN THE CLASSROOM
“Building as a Learning Tool” is a work in progress that uses a facility management portal that provides energy data from a building’s electric and gas meters in an easy-to-read, near real-time, web-based format. The data are displayed on gauges that resemble those found on an automobile dashboard. This organization and manipulation of data never before possible aids in the rapid interpretation of a building’s energy use, permits comparisons to simulations of how the building operates under different conditions, and provides an opportunity to assess the impact that changes or repairs to the building have on energy usage. In addition to improving building performance in the Newark Public School District, Building as a Learning Tool allows students to learn how a school building can and should perform under various operating conditions.
