  • Net Zero: What Is It, What Does It Mean For You?

    Aug 7, 2012

    The U.S. Army has set the goal of Net-Zero energy consumption by 2030. For an installation to be Net-Zero it must produce as much energy on site as it consumes. This includes thermal and electrical energy. Installations can still be connected to the civilian grid, but over the course of the year the energy pulled from the grid must equal the amount supplied to it. A simple example would be if the hydro dam produced three megawatts of electricity 24 hours a day and the post used six MW for 12 hours a day and zero for the other 12 hours. Given this case, the installation would be Net-Zero because even though it still pulls three MW from the grid during the operating day, it supplies three MW back to the utility at night.
