You are here

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today recognized 34 of the nation's leading builders at the 2016 Housing Innovation Awards during the Energy and Environmental Building Alliance's Excellence in Building Conference in Dallas, Texas. The winners were selected by a diverse panel of builders, architects, and industry professionals for their outstanding accomplishments in designing and building Zero Energy-Ready Homes.

"Housing Innovation Award winners are leaders in the ongoing transformation of the housing industry as they strive to zero energy-ready homes," said Sam Rashkin, Chief Architect, DOE's Building Technologies Office. "The level of performance we saw from our awardees underscores the importance of building high-efficiency homes of the future. These homes provide Americans with the ability to save money through reduced or eliminated utility bills, engineered comfort, comprehensive health protection, and overall peace-of-mind they are making a smart investment."

congratulations to the 2016 housing innovation award winners!
