NZE, SDG, carbon footprint


Net Zero Energy (NZE) buildings play a crucial role in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and creating environmentally friendly residential areas. These buildings are designed to generate as much energy as they consume, resulting in a net balance of zero energy consumption from the grid. By integrating innovative technologies and sustainable design principles, NZE buildings minimize their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future. The acquired result has been presented and discussed. The concept of Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) has gained significant attention in recent years as a crucial strategy for achieving sustainability in the built environment. NZEBs are designed to produce as much energy as they consume, resulting in a net energy balance of zero over a specified period.
