Forum — Housing Transformations: Path to Zero and Race to Zero

July 29, 2015
Session W5B: Path to Zero-Energy Housing
4:00 pm  -  5:00 pm

Codes and performance standards for housing are rapidly improving; however much diversity remains in the methods, policy and practices for achieving net-zero energy/net-zero energy ready housing on a broad scale. This forum will explore these questions through presentations of recent research and case studies. Topics include identifying standards, benchmarks and current trends in the market acceptance of “green” housing; strategies for achieving net-zero energy/zero-energy ready homes; and performance verification and policy concerns affecting wide-scale adoption of low/zero energy housing.
