ABSTRACT
The article defines several types of buildings cited in the seminal paper titled "Zero Energy Buildings: A Critical Look at the Definition," by Paul Torcellini and colleagues. Such terms include Net Zero Site Energy, which produces as much energy as it uses in a year. Another is Net Zero Source Energy, which refers to the primary energy used in energy generation and delivery. The Net Zero Energy Emissions, which produces at least as much emissions-free renewable energy it uses, is also noted.
