Zero Energy Home Design Webinar
This free webinar provides guidance on net zero energy design for architects, contractors and others involved in low-rise residential development. Topics include recent UH research on how Hawai’i homes consume energy, cost effective beyond-code energy efficiency strategies, integrating solar energy for net-zero performance, and adding battery storage to shift electricity demand.

The need for zero-energy homes is greater than ever as Hawai'i transitions to 100 percent clean energy. The goal of this webinar is to aid in this transition with information that helps designers and contractors integrate efficiency, solar energy and energy storage. The guidance is informed by several research projects, including detailed monitoring and simulation of seven Hawai'i homes.
