ZEH Impact Study

Once just a concept, truly Zero Energy Homes (ZEH) are now a reality in a handful of locales throughout the United States. And the opportunities to construct ZEH are growing as solar and other energy-efficient technologies become more affordable. To demonstrate the significant long-term energy and environmental benefits of ZEH and encourage more builders to investigate the idea for their customers, a new publication has been released – The Potential Impact of Zero Energy Homes.

The study featured in the publication was developed by Home Innovation Research Labs, the Department of Energy, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. It includes home builder insight and experiences, as well as consumer opinions gathered through market research that validate the ZEH concept from a homebuyer perspective.
