Case Study: Batik apartments’ innovative hot water system achieves near net-zero operational carbon emissions

ZEBx, the Zero Emissions Building Exchange, recently recognized Batik‘s innovative low-carbon hot water system in a case study conducted with Ecotope, the City of Vancouver, and the University of British Columbia.

The total energy-use intensity of the building is 17 kBtu/ft2 year (54 kWh/m2 year), which is more than 50% lower than the current requirement in the Seattle Building Code (35 kBtu/ft2 year).

Congratulations to the entire project team for your work on this project, especially Vulcan Real Estate and Ecotope, Inc., for making Batik one of the lowest energy-use multi-family residential buildings in Seattle!
