Energy Benefits Of Integrating Transportation Energy With A Net Zero Energy Solar Building Using Captured Waste Hydrogen From Electrochemical Plants And Bio-Gas From Various Bio-Gasification Processes

When considering a net zero energy building, the transportation energy sector is often viewed as a separate entity. Currently, hydrocarbons are the main source of energy used in the transportation sector. In an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more automotive manufacturers are moving towards alternatively fueled vehicles that are electric or fuel cell powered. Electrochemical and other process industries frequently vent or flare hydrogen into the atmosphere and most community municipal waste is buried underground (landfill) or burned to generate electricity resulting in greenhouse gas emissions. Energy benefits and the methods of achieving net zero energy status for a solar building and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the integration of these waste streams and transportation energy are discussed.
