Hawaii Preparatory Academy Energy Lab Featured in "The Power of Zero"

The Energy Lab at Hawaiian Preparatory Academy is one of 19 buildings featured in The Power of Zero: Learning from the World’s Leading Net Zero Energy Buildings, published by the International Living Future Institute, a Seattle-based NGO that leads and supports the transformation toward communities that are socially just, culturally rich, and ecologically restorative. Buildings featured in the publication use no more energy than they generate over the course of a year.

Author Brad Liljequist notes that the building, which has received LEED Platinum and Living Building Challenge certification, immerses students in the the very systems that they study, offering a “continuous, sustainable teaching moment.”
