These postcards are a key part of the Z-NET Blueprint process, and are used by the participating communities to consider and identify their preferred solutions.
A tailored version of the postcards will be created for each new town or village as part of their work to become a Zero Net Energy Town.
Z-NET Technical Model
The Z-NET Technical Model is the mathematical machine which holds things together. It incorporates a town’s current energy footprint and analyses the merits ~ both energy-wise and financially ~ of the various options available to reduce and produce energy.
Our long-term goal is to make this tool available using an open and crowd sourcing platform so that it is much more user friendly for towns and villages to use.
At this stage a town or village is likely to require a highly competent technical team to be able to accurately use this.
The Z-NET Blueprints are models created for towns and villages to be able to assess and design their own plans to achieve 100% renewable energy over a period of 5-10 years.
