Mapping the Path to Zero: Market Acceleration Action Plan
On December 11, 2013, the Net-Zero Energy Home Coalition released the outcomes from its inaugural Net-Zero North American Leadership Summit. The goal of the summit was to bring together net-zero innovators in energy efficient technology, builders, developers, designers, product companies, utilities, government and public agencies to collectively map the path to zero. Together attendees identified opportunities for collaboration and combining efforts across North America to accelerate the market adoption of net-zero at the community scale.
Through a highly interactive exchange of ideas among industry leaders, subject matter experts and game changers, the summit explored best practices, lessons learned and successes. This resulted in the identification of five key areas of focus by group participants: Policy & the Grid, Driving Market Demand, Finance & Real Estate, Education & Collaboration, and Products & Technologies. Specific priorities were identified for each of these areas as key activities for execution in 2014-2016.
