Abstract

This paper is a case study of the Melink manufacturing facility and their quest to become net zero (NZEB). Melink is a LEED EB Platinum Certified building. Renewable energy technologies on site include solar photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal, a wind turbine, biomass stoves and ground source heat pumps. Through energy efficient building design, added renewable energy technologies and optimized building control; NZEB performance is attainable. This paper will discuss the existing building, NZEB performance given existing performance; and an energy management plan to achieve zero energy (ZEB) performance.
