A Zero Energy Building (ZEB), sometimes referred to as a net-zero energy building, is one that produces as much energy on site as it consumes within a given year. Understand that every building uses energy. The key difference is that ZEBs are sustainable in the way they consume only as much energy as they can produce via renewable energy generation. Often times the energy produced far exceeds the energy consumed.
There are two crucial steps when it comes to designing effective ZEBs:

By combining energy efficiency and renewable energy generation, Effectiv can help you to consume only as much energy as can be produced onsite over a specified time period. Our innovative energy conservation measures and renewable energy design practices allow us to create zero energy sites that are practical, efficient and effective.
Join the carbon neutrality movement and do your part in combatting global climate change. Zero Carbon Emissions is an increasingly important mission for facilities across all industries, in all corners of the world. We can help you to balance carbon emissions with carbon removal, creating facilities that our local and global communities can be proud of.
One hurdle we've encountered with Zero-Energy projects is lack of capital. Effectiv's expert incentive identification and financial solutions allow for off balance sheet projects that require zero upfront capital and transfer risk and responsibility to a team of experts. Contact us for a project consultation and we'll determine the funding solutions that are appropriate and available for you.
