Department of Energy finishes largest zero-energy building in U.S.

Post Time:Jul 06,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:131

Walking the walk is key when playing the environmental game, which is why we’re thrilled to report that the United States Department of Energy has completed their new zero-energy research building in Colorado. It clocks in at 222,000 square feet and is the largest zero-energy building in the United States. Boasting 50 percentless energy usage than a conventional building of its size and a huge array of on-site solar panels, the new Research Support Facility is able to produce all the energy it needs to function without borrowing from the grid. The U.S.government certainly seems to be leading by example with this passive beauty, according to a July 6 Inhabitat report.
