Presentation: Residential New Construction Program Development to Support Zero Net Energy (ZNE)


Thanks to Build It Green, you can hear from Matt Christie of TRC through the webinar below on how utility programming for residential new construction is being built out to support and satisfy the state’s zero net energy goals. (The webinar focuses on IOU programming, but speaks to some municipal utility programming as well.) Specifically, the webinar covers:

  • What the state’s ZNE goals, and ZNE definition are;
  • Incentive programs – including the California Advanced Homes Program (CAHP), California Multi-family New Homes (CAMFNH), and the SMUD SMART Homes Program
  • Design assistance – including through the California Advanced Homes Program (CAHP) Master Builder and SMUD ZNE Support

Given all of the conflicting information around what ZNE means, I recommend Matt’s graphic of the different definitions, and description of what the state is calling zero net energy, available at minute 7:50.
