DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes and the Year Ahead

"Zero Energy Ready Homes" have grown from a niche product unfamiliar to many, to a standard offering in the marketplace found in codes, stretch codes, and many utility and affordable housing programs. But we're still in the early stages of the journey to zero. The DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes program is moving to Version 2 in 2022, which will incorporate more proven innovations and establish ZERH as the jumping off point for net zero performance. At the same time, Zero Energy Ready Homes have reached a new high with major commitments from large production builders, affordable housing developers, and military housing projects. Finally, the program is launching the ZERH-Multifamily spec in 2022 to serve as the next step for Energy Star Multifamily New Construction builders. During this session we invite you to learn more about these exciting program advancements and share your input and questions.
