Phius' fastest growing performance standard, Phius ZERO sets the industry standard for net zero energy design. It defines a conservation-and-quality first approach for zero energy design. It places emphasis on quality, durability, healthy, safety, and cost-optimized conservation.
The Path to Zero
Carbon neutrality is one of our prime directives at Phius, and with our climate-appropriate energy targets and electrification requirements constructing a building to our standards goes a long way in reducing a person or organization’s carbon footprint.
Phius ZERO certification pushes further than the flagship Phius CORE, by achieving all of the same requirements and also netting out energy use on an annual basis with renewable energy. These projects have operational carbon neutrality and are set up for energy independence.
Eliminate Fossil-Fueled Combustion On-Site
Phius ZERO advances electrification efforts by banning fossil-fueled combustion on site.
Support the Renewable Energy Transition
Projects that meet Phius ZERO have not only implemented best practices for on-site energy conservation but also net out their annual operational energy with renewable energy. The Phius ZERO standard specifications allow for both on-site and off-site renewable energy, while favoring on-site and local renewable energy first.
Retrofit to Zero
Decarbonizing the existing built environment is a crucial part of the mission to zero energy, and our Phius ZERO REVIVE program provides a path to do just that.Phius ZERO REVIVE
