This RDH Technical Bulletin covers a detailed analysis of 22 case studies of high-performance buildings in the Pacific Northwest.
In addition to providing an analysis of measured energy savings, this bulletin assesses estimates of incremental costs and common design features. These case studies demonstrate success with deep energy retrofits in existing buildings or achieving near net-zero new construction. In addition to their ultra-low energy characteristics, the cases were selected for their resilience to climate change and their replication potential across the Pacific Northwest. General recommendations for moving toward ultra-low energy consumption in the built environment are also included at the end of the bulletin.
