The U.S. Department of Energy is hosting its annual Housing Innovation Awards competition to recognize the nation’s leading builders of extremely energy-efficient, zero energy ready homes. SIPA encourages its members to take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain national exposure through the DOE website and public relations activities. Winners will receive a full case study on the DOE website and a profile of their home on the DOE Tour of Zero, a virtual home tour of energy-efficient homes.
Winners will be selected for each of four categories: custom, production, multifamily, and affordable homes. To qualify, homes must have been built during the last year (April 1, 2014 – May 31, 2015).
Representatives from the DOE will announce the winning projects on October 6, 2015 during the EEBA Excellence in Building Conference & Expo in Denver, Colorado.
Applications are due May 31, 2015.
