Zero Energy Ready Homes can save a bundle for home owners, and they don’t have to break the bank for home builders either. There are many options for housing stakeholders to join the zero movement and the time has come to demystify these how to do just that. This session includes lessons learned from innovative builders across the country who are building award-winning production, and custom, affordable and multifamily homes that achieve remarkably high performance levels, in some cases at little or no extra cost compared to code construction.

  • Discuss what data and trends make a compelling case to build net zero homes.
  • Review an easy-to-understand framework for a net zero housing road map that all builders can engage.
  • Explore cost-effective techniques for high-R framed wall construction and options for low-load high-efficiency HVAC.
  • Identify key home construction components for achieving a healthier indoor environment.
