Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility is a High Tech Robotic Green Dinosaur

Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility is a High Tech Robotic Green Dinosaur

NIST /Public Domain They just cut the ribbon at the Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility in Gaithersburg, Maryland. It is a test bed to demostrate net-zero-energy capability. According to EcoHome : “We want to demonstrate that energy efficiency does not need to be at odds with a typical suburban neighborhood,” said NIST director and Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology Patrick Gallagher at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “We think that by demonstrating that it’s possible to have the home design you want, with the energy efficiency you want, we’ll help speed the adoption of energy-efficient technologies and net-zero homes.” NIST/Public Domain It is designed by Betsy Pettit of Building Science Corporation , who are among the best in the business; BSC's Joseph Lstiburek and John Straube have been quoted in TreeHugger numerous times. There are a lot of re...
