Abstract—Systems utilizing renewable energies can provide clean, reliable, secure and competitive energy products to help meet the rapidly increasing global energy demand. This paper explores the reduction of pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions by utilizing solar Zero Energy Building (ZEB) for a typical detached house in Tehran. Brief description about the design of such a building is presented. Regarding the fact that electricity and natural gas consumption are covering 75 % of building energy consumption in Iran, this analysis includes two points of view, a direct and an indirect one. Direct analysis is conducted by investigation of consumption of natural gases in conventional homes while electricity generation at power plants requires indirect analysis in order to calculate consequent pollution elimination. Finally, the reduction of social costs which go along with reduction in pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions, are investigated. Results suggest that implementation of a ZEB in Iran reduce pollutants and greenhouse gases up to 4759 kg of CO2 per family annually.

Index Terms—Pollutants and greenhouse gases, social costs, zero energy building for Tehran.
