Energy ETC Chosen as Master Integrators for Zero Net Energy Center

San Leandro, California - Energy ETC is very proud to be selected as the master systems integrator for the nation's first commercial building retrofit designed to meet the U.S. Department of Energy's requirement for a "zero net energy" building. The Zero Net Energy Center's advanced building systems will be monitored and automatically controlled by software designed and implemented by the Energy ETC team.

In addition to tracking the ZNEC's power generation and usage, the integrated Energy Management System will ensure that all connected building systems work in harmony to exceed the energy conservation goals of the Obama administration's Better Buildings Challenge.

The 46,000 square foot building will use 75% less energy compared to similar existing commercial buildings in the country. Energy ETC's control system will optimize lighting and HVAC systems while taking advantage of natural lighting and automated operable windows for natural ventilation. Constant monitoring of building energy usage will be compared to the power generated by the ZNEC's wind turbines, solar tree, rooftop solar, and thermal solar systems.
The ZNEC will serve as the training facility for over 2,000 electricians in Alameda County. Classrooms will have access to the state-of-the-art control system as part of their curriculum in advanced building controls for renewable and energy efficient systems.
