Zero Energy / Zero Carbon

DCRA in conjunction with the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) is proud to announce the launch of Washington DC’s first volunteer Net-Zero Energy (NZE) Program! We are excited to bring you this industry leading program designed to help projects of all types and sizes meet the achievable and fulfilling goal of going Net-Zero. Below you will find helpful documents and guides, created to introduce you to the concept of DC NZE. Our program is hands on, so please reach out to us when you are ready to learn more. For NZE program questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing about your project.

How to Participate



We are working diligently to compile new and useful resources on Net-Zero Energy (NZE) projects specific to Washington D.C. We recommend checking back here periodically for updates and new information. As always, you are encouraged to reach out directly to Green Building staff.

Please take a look at our NZE guides developed by New Buildings Institute (NBI); winner of our NZE education and outreach grant.
