I was looking in the openstudio-standards library and saw this standard development. Where can we find a definition for this? Also, how could I implement this similar to the Create DOE Prototype Building measure in openstudio? Thanks!

NREL ZNE Ready 2017 is not a formal standard, nor is it related to ASHRAE. Instead, it is a set of efficiency parameters and details meant to represent buildings targeting ZNE, and is based on improvements to the ASHRAE 90.1-2013 standard. It is meant to support upcoming ZNE guides, similar to the Advanced Energy Design Guides released by ASHRAE several years ago.

There isn't yet a publically released measure to create a building from this template, but that may be released at a future date. For now, you make HVAC systems built to the ZNE Ready 2017 template with the NZEHVAC measure on BCL.
