Net Zero Energy and Net Zero Energy Ready Housing – Lessons learned and key findings from the ecoEII Net-Zero Demonstration and the R-2000 Net-Zero Energy Pilot
The report describes the lessons learned from demonstration projects aiming to demonstrate the construction of Net Zero Energy and Net Zero Energy Ready Housing.
The houses constructed under the Pilot generally used off-the-shelf technology compared with previous NZE and low-energy housing programs. They incorporate commercially available products in place of customized or experimental energy systems and, while constructing NZE/NZER houses still requires a cost premium above minimum code construction, this incremental cost was significantly lower in the Pilot than in previous low-energy demonstration programs and initiatives.
