The Building Energy Research Group (BERG) is a collective at the University of Wyoming which is helping to build homes with Net-Zero energy in the state of Wyoming. BERG utilizes the skills of University of Wyoming faculty as well as advanced students to aid in the planning and execution of building houses for the Frontier Zero Project. Homes that are being built for Frontier Zero are built consciously with factors in mind such as super insulation, HVAC systems, photovoltaics, among other technologies. These choices allow the homes to utilize energy generated on site as well as reduce loss through more conscious building decisions. In the following Frontier Zero Series, the players and influencers in BERG and sustainable building in Wyoming will be featured, as well as some of the advantages to choosing to build sustainably in Wyoming.
