Building - Scale Water Impacts & Self - Reliance

The diversity of building systems and self-reliance of the building from an energy and water standpoint is also important for the resilience of the building. As part of the development of computational approaches in this regard, and to be able to relate such building characteristics to the life cycle assessment approach, we have extensively studied a local net-zero energy and water building.
