Recurring droughts and fires, severe weather stressing electric grids, and fluctuations in the natural gas market have communities and individuals increasingly seeking out solutions to create more resilient homes and businesses. Buildings that are energy, carbon, and water neutral have often been considered out of reach, but with new technologies and increasing energy and water prices, they are more attainable than ever. This session will explore the current state of “zero” and identify the challenges holding us back and opportunities, such as energy codes, pushing us forward.
Industrialized construction practices, such as off-site manufacturing, have demonstrated an ability to reduce build times, lower costs, improve quality and performance, reduce environmental impact, create safer working environments, and increase overall construction productivity. Although this practice is far from new, challenges persist around code fragmentation, state and local inspections, and general education. In this session, we will hear about how DOE is supporting this practice through the Advanced Building Construction Initiative, the development of new off-site construction standards, and how manufacturers are finding creative ways to streamline code compliance.
