This project addresses the objectives of the Statement of Need number WPSON-17-20 "No/Low Global Warming Potential Alternatives to Ozone Depleting Refrigerants." Its goal is to identify and demonstrate performance of low global-warming-potential (GWP), non

Residential net-zero energy buildings: Review and perspective

May 1, 2021
Wei Wu, Harrison Skye
Advancements in residential net-zero energy buildings (NZEBs) could significantly reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. NZEB design considerations broadly categorize into energy infrastructure connections, renewable energy sources, and energy

Laboratory Tests of a Prototype Carbon Dioxide Ground-Source Air Conditioner

April 12, 2021
Harrison Skye, Wei Wu
Environmental concerns are driving regulations to reduce the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with high global warming potential (GWP) as refrigerants in heat pumps. CO2 is an attractive alternative refrigerant because is it 'environmentally friendly' in

Progress in Ground-source Heat Pumps Using Natural Refrigerants

August 1, 2018
Wei Wu, Harrison Skye, Lingnan Lin
Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerants with high Global Warming Potential (GWP) will be phased down significantly under the Montreal Protocol. Natural refrigerants have a very low GWP and are inexpensive, and therefore are

Net-Zero and Beyond! Design and Performance of NIST’s Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility

May 15, 2015
Arthur H. Fanney, William V. Payne, Tania Ullah, Lisa C. Ng, Matthew T. Boyd, Farhad Omar, Mark W. Davis, Harrison M. Skye, Brian P. Dougherty, Brian J. Polidoro, William M. Healy, Joshua D. Kneifel, Betsy Pettit
A Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility has been constructed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The facility is being used to demonstrate that a home similar in size, aesthetics, and amenities to those in

Monitoring Techniques for the Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility

December 31, 2014
Mark W. Davis, William M. Healy, Matthew Boyd, Lisa Ng, William V. Payne, Harrison Skye, Tania Ullah
NIST has constructed a Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility that will be used as a testbed for investigating the measurement science related to systems, components, and operations that will lead to homes that generate as much energy over a course of a
