The LUCIA building of the University of Valladolid is considered a Zero CO2 emissions and Zero Energy Building due to its strategies in passive and bioclimatic design to reduce energy demand in maintenance as well as only using on-site renewable energies (biomass, photovoltaic and geothermal). This building demonstrates that is indeed possible to achieve energy autonomy with 100% renewable energy and zero carbon emissions.
