In case you missed it, we can now create new buildings that are so efficient that they can create most of the power they need onsite and it can be done at a very small or even no premium to standard buildings.
There are a few big challenges to widespread adoption:
1. We need to take Bold action.
2. Everyone involved needs to buy into the idea (Owners, builders, designers)
3. We need Simple, elegant, low cost tools to use to guide the infinite possibilities of a building design in the right direction. The Zero code is a straightforward set of code style rules that gets a new building on the path to zero-net-carbon without having to pay for a plaque.
