Net Zero Retrofit Initiative (NZER)

Net zero energy (NZE) buildings – those that produce as much energy as they use over the course of a year - stand to transform how energy is generated, used and conserved in the built environment. The Net Zero Energy Retrofit Initiative is a research, design and implementation program that will provide a holistic and comprehensive framework for optimal net zero energy retrofits on existing UMD buildings. The team will partner with Facilities Management and provide two full building case-studies over two years to produce a set of practical renovation strategies to achieve net zero energy.
