The nation is on the cusp of a dramatic movement to zero energy ready homes. This includes statewide codes, large developments, and a growing amount of commitment to the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home program. Much of this progress can be attributed to a small contingent of our nation’s leading builders who are demonstrating the technical, cost, and design feasibility for this level of excellence
At the 2015 Leading Builder Round Table meeting, the winners of the DOE Housing Innovation Awards as well as other leading innovative builders, gathered and shared lessons‐learned and key challenges moving forward. The third historic gathering of the top executives from leading builders provided a forum for these builders to work together to identify common needs, successful strategies, and other ideas. Over this half‐day meeting, interest was high in achieving solutions and in working together with DOE toward a common goal. This report documents the key results.
