Zero energy buildings are on the increasing trend. They are perceived as appropriate technology to reducing CO2 emissions, improving energy efficiency and alleviating energy poverty. The main goal is that a grid-connected building produces enough energy on site to equal or exceed its annual energy requirement while using the grid as a buffer. Many municipalities see this concept as a prospective solution for developing future neighborhoods and thereby aim to develop a neighborhood with net zero energy concept. This paper proposes passive designs measures and distributed power generations required in designing such a neighborhood.
