Plug load reduction: The next big hurdle for net zero energy building design
free download

This paper discusses the importance of reducing plug loads as the industry embraces net zero energy buildings. As buildings have become more energy efficient, plug loads as a proportion of the building load have increased significantly. Data is presented to explain this

Concept project of zero energy building
