The quality of a resource, called exergy, is more important than energy.
Minimizing exergy destruction is the path to Net Zero Carbon buildings and communities.
Exergy (quality) of a resource, is a measure of the potential of a resource to do useful work. The rigorous pursuit of exergy preservation saves energy (quantity) and results in a true sustainable solution.
Change your approach, change the result.
The pursuit of exergy preservation objectives:
Reduce demand – apply smart building envelope techniques.
Improve efficiency – reduce total input energy to accomplish level of service.
Reduce waste – Capture energy before it leaves the building.
Use renewable energy – Integrate solar, sewer exchange, or thermal storage.
Manage thermal energy – Adapt to variable building loads. Time, Quantity, Quality.
Optimize energy exchange – Heating is cooling, focus on both sides of every exchange.
Optimize energy delivery – Water density moves more energy with less energy
Match loads with sources – Use multiple and variable temperatures.
Use passive-aggressive heat reclaim – passive only techniques underutilize waste heat.
