Additionally, the study reinforced previous years’ findings. “Projects of two or more units (both single- and multifamily) dominate ZE activity across the US and Canada; they represented 94% of all ZE units in 2015, 95% in 2016, 94% in 2017, and clocked in at 95.4% in 2018. The unwavering prevalence of commercial ZE residential development is a clear signal that ZE is not a tiny niche for bespoke homes.”  TEAM ZERO started tracking zero energy homes in the US and Canada in 2015, using the term “zero energy” broadly, seeking to include all residential projects designed to achieve energy performance in the realm of zero. Team Zero does not verify individual projects but rather relies on individuals to report their projects’ energy...
