These zero energy programs aim to design sustainable buildings that incorporate renewable energy sources for specific types of buildings, including schools, districts, and homes.
Zero Energy Schools Accelerator >>
The goal of this program is to provide achievable solutions to energy needs that reduce school operating costs and engage students in active learning.
Zero Energy Ready Home Program >>
The Zero Energy Ready Home program incorporates practical and well-tested designs that allow homes to consume less energy than a normal home while producing renewable energy. These homes are verified by a qualified third-party and are significantly more energy efficient than a typical new home, conserving at least 40%-50% more energy.
Zero Energy Districts Accelerator >>
There are certain hurdles that come with designing a built environment for a densely populated, multi-use, and geographically cohesive area. This program addresses challenges faced when designing buildings at a district scale.
U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon >>
The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition, comprising 10 contests, that challenges student teams to design and build highly efficient and innovative buildings powered by renewable energy.
