The increased use of renewable energy sources in buildings has resulted in the development of Zero Energy Buildings(ZEB). To assess the gaps for ZEB system integration and performance optimization,this paper summarizes a study undertaken to reveal potential challenges and opportunities for intelligent control system of ZEB, and comprehensively reviews current trends in building system performance optimization. The findings indicate a breakthrough of 3M (Micro-grid, Multi-agent, Multi-objective)system of ZEB for system integration and performance optimization and a concept of ZEB to Urban Heat Island(UHI) mitigation based on Smart Grid.
