    What It's About

    High performance building, and zero energy homes in particular, are no longer a nice-to-have. This is obvious looking at the increased rigor of the latest energy codes, growth in voluntary certifications, new 45L federal tax credits, ESG movement and growing consumer demand. So now, builders must learn to get there faster, better and cheaper. In this session, learn the critical concepts for achieving zero energy and zero carbon homes along with the business case for doing so profitably. Explore a total cost accounting method to capture all related costs and benefits and discover the most cost-effective options for the most critical component, the enclosure. Leave on the right path to achieving zero energy performance and meeting buyer demand all while avoiding tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary expense.
