California’s aggressive energy reduction goals include having 50% of existing commercial buildings retrofit to ZNE by 2030. In this California Energy Commission EPIC project, replicable ZNE retrofit packages for small commercial buildings were developed with costs within 10% of conventional construction. Some of the unique challenges for deploying ZNE in small commercial buildings are explored, with proposed solutions that offer relevance to large commercial buildings as well.
