What's so great about zero energy, anyway?

I first became interested in zero energy buildings in 2003. There were several things that pulled me into the concept, and probably the most compelling aspect was the scale of the change. At the time, I was managing a municipal green building program and we were struggling to convince developers to make relatively minor incremental changes like using Low-E windows or high-efficiency furnaces. The notion of zero energy was such a radical leap forward. The other big thing that was intriguing to me, let’s face it, was that it was cool.

Smart career choices in shifting economy

Saving energy has become a major driving force in job growth worldwide. A recent report from the US Department of Energy (DOE) called the 2017 Energy and Jobs Report shows that employment numbers are five times higher in the energy efficiency, solar, and wind industries than it is in coal, gas, and petroleum. Because the amount of electricity coming from renewables has been growing far faster than that coming from older, fossil-fuel plants, it stands to reason that employment in these declining sectors would be weaker than in the more robust emerging sectors. Growth industries create more jobs, and these are good-paying, family-wage jobs.
