Since 2013, The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Housing Innovation Awards has recognized the very best in innovation on the path to zero energy ready homes.  The Housing Innovation Awards recognize forward-thinking builders for delivering American homebuyers with the home of the future, today. Explore these award winning homes on the Tour of Zero.

The 2016 Housing Innovation Awards will be held September 27-29 at the EEBA Excellence in Building Conference and Expo in Frisco, TX.  This year's awards include winners from five categories, with a Grand Winner to be selected in each category by our esteemed panel of judges.  This year, the five award categories include:

  • Custom Buyer: Custom home built for a specific buyer
    • Custom Spec: Custom home builder on an individual rather than production scale to be sold on speculation rather than pre-ordered by a buyer
    • Production: Homes intended to be reporduced using standard approaches and plans
    • Multi-Family: A building with two or more units serving multiple homeowners/ rental groups
    • Affordable: A home built to an affordable price point

    In addition to the award, each winning home is recognized with a page on the Tour of Zero and a customized case study that will be included on their partner profile in the Partner Locator section of the Zero Energy Ready Home website.
