    Hi Ghansah. A net zero energy building is one that produces as much energy as it uses. A net zero energy building is built to be very energy efficient and air tight. Then a highly efficient heating and cooling system is used, and usually LED lights and energy efficient equipment and appliances are used to keep energy use low. Once the building is as energy efficiency as possible, solar collectors are used to produce the energy that is needed. Zero energy buildings produce zero net carbon emissions as well. You can learn more about zero energy homes here. You may also want to view the pages on warmer climate construction of zero energy buildings.
