Two net zero buildings installed for the College of Education by the Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute and funded by the Office of Naval Research, opened their doors to the public in celebration of the FROG 1 and 2 grand opening on November 4. These FROG (Flexible Response to Ongoing Growth) classrooms will serve as models of energy efficient classroom design, minimizing energy use in a mixed-mode environment while using self-generated, renewable energy to offset energy consumption. Real-time building performance is displayed to users via a touch-screen dashboard, and the data is downloadable and can be integrated into STEM curricula.
