In partnership with the California Energy Commission and the City of San Diego, CSE is engaged in a multiyear project aimed at testing, verifying and publicizing the integration of energy efficiency, solar photovoltaic systems and other demand-side resources to convert three public libraries to zero net energy (ZNE) or near ZNE buildings.

The SD ZN3 Project team will investigate benefits and barriers of implementing integrated demand-side management (IDSM) technologies in municipal, community-based buildings, including the viability of financing, demand response revenue models, sustainable energy savings and ZNE operations.
