Sustainability Performance of the NIST Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility Relative to a Maryland Code Compliant Design
Joshua D. Kneifel, Eric G. O'Rear
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) received funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to construct a Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF). The initial goal of the NZERTF is to demonstrate that a net-zero energy residential design can look and feel like a typical home in the Gaithersburg area. The purpose of this report is to compare the sustainability performance including energy, economic, and environmental metrics, of the NZERTF design to a comparable Maryland code-compliant building design using whole building energy simulations, life-cycle costing, and life-cycle assessment.
