Hear the latest developments on new and cost-effective approaches that make ZE construction more accessible to all builders.

Advanced heat pump technology, lighting, and solar PV options are challenging the old zero energy paradigm of investments in air sealing, insulation, and expensive window upgrades. Learn the different interpretations of what "zero energy" means and how builders are cost-effectively achieving it in the Pacific Northwest.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to achieve zero energy construction using the most cost-effective approaches available.
  • Understand how utilizing integrated design process, passive house construction techniques, and energy modeling software can help project teams realize client's goals within a given budget.
  • Educate your clients on what will really help them save energy versus what might drive the cost of construction out of reach.
  • Discover details for designing with solar PV, community solar options for homes without solar access, the potential role of home battery energy storage, and more.
