EEBA & TEAM ZERO Align to Drive Demand for Zero Impact Homes
Push-pull marketing strategy dovetails builder education, consumer demand
Plymouth, MN, July 20, 2020 — The Boards of Directors of the Energy and Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) and TEAM ZERO have agreed to work together to build a new alliance to move residential construction as rapidly as possible towards a zero-impact future. This agreement will combine the long-established education and training resources of EEBA with TEAM ZERO’s campaigning role as consumer demand builder.
This expanded alliance will combine EEBA’s long-established high-performance homes training and networking groups with TEAM ZERO’s annual zero-energy residential inventory, Gateway to Zero resource hub, and consumer engagement campaign. The two nonprofits are harmonizing their offerings to grow homeowner demand and builder capacity on a parallel track.
“EEBA is delighted that it can broaden its alliance by linking up with TEAM ZERO’s exciting and easy to understand market-changing approach,” said EEBA CEO Aaron Smith. “Our upcoming Virtual High Performance Home Summit will feature an exclusive Paths to ZERO track,” he added.
Frank Baker, TEAM ZERO President, reiterated EEBA’s excitement. “We are working with EEBA to plan a one-stop membership and sponsorship approach for all who are on a path to zero,” he explained. “Together, we will offer convincing Zero Impact Future value propositions to all stakeholders, including developers, builders, architects, building scientists, manufacturers, municipalities and–most important of all–homebuyers.”
