Whether for new or existing buildings, getting to zero net energy means first maximizing energy efficiency, then adding renewable generation to cover remaining energy needs. In its Getting To Zero Buildings Database, the New Buildings Institute features more than 280 buildings in the United States, Canada, and beyond that have either been verified as zero net energy buildings (37 as of December 2014), or are zero net energy “emerging.”

Whether or not your sights are set on zero net energy for existing facilities or future construction, energy reductions are probably high on your list of priorities. In the past year, what is the single most effective change you’ve made to reduce energy consumption in your facility (or facilities)? How do you know it’s working?
