Solar Integration Guide:
Solar Readiness vs Solar Now
To achieve zero net energy (ZNE) and meet AIA 2030 commitments, we can only get so far with a building designed to meet the highest sustainability standards. Even with the most energy-efficient systems and materials, a building will still take more than it gives, unless on-site energy production is tied into the building to achieve ZNE goals. For this guide, we look specifically at solar integration with buildings — how to prepare for solar in the future and how to incorporate it now.
