520    "Net Zero-Energy Buildings have been the object of 
       numerous studies in recent years as various countries have
       set this performance level as a long-term goal of their 
       energy policies. This book presents a unique study of 30 
       NZEBs that have been constructed and have had their 
       performance measured for at least 12 months. The study is 
       based upon an international collaborative research 
       initiated by the International Energy Agency. It is the 
       first book to evaluate building strategies in houses, 
       educational buildings and offices that have been 
       demonstrated to work in practice. It examines how the 
       design challenges of climate and building type have been 
       addressed, and to what extent the various design 
       approaches have been successful. This book presents 
       convincing evidence that a careful re-thinking of 
       conventional design norms can achieve a far greater 
       performance benefit than is normally feasible. It 
       identifies 'solution sets' that work at the whole building
       level and at the individual building design challenge 
       level for each climate and building type. In doing so, the
       book provides guidance as to how to improve the design by 
       learning from these cases. Unusually for a book of this 
       type it has examples of buildings in what are 
       conventionally labeled 'hot' and 'cold' climates. A simple
       process is proposed for the reader to commission the 
       analysis of their own climate to assess not only the 
       conventional measure of how hot or cold or humid it is, 
       but also to assess its suitability to support other NZEB 
       technical challenge solutions sets such as Daylight or 
       Natural Ventilation or comfort based climate 
       conditioning."--Page 4 of cover.
