Architects Issue Statement on DOE’s Net-Zero Energy Building Definition

Washington, D.C.  September 21 , 2015 – The American Institute of Architects (AIA) today issued the following statement on the Department of Energy’s release of a common definition of a zero energy building, or what is also referred to as a “net zero energy” or “zero net energy” building. Please attribute to AIA President Elizabeth Chu Richter, FAIA:

“We applaud the Department of Energy’s continuing work to promote buildings that use less energy. For more than 150 years, AIA-member architects have worked to advance our quality of life through design. From designing the next generation of energy-saving buildings to making our communities healthier and more vibrant, the 86,000 members of the AIA shape our future through their work. The quality of this future is wholly dependent on sustainable, resilient buildings that reduce the nation’s reliance on non-renewable energy sources. That is why the Department of Energy’s work is vitally important to the industry and nation as a whole.”
