Net Zero Energy - NZE Housing Canada

Add Favorites Contact Author

The idea of a Net Zero Energy (NZE) home is that it produces at least as much energy as it consumes on an yearly basis. Currently, NZE does not have a market feasibility, due to the initial cost of about $100,000 to $150,000.


CanmetENERGY’s goal is to drastically reduce the risk and cost of NZE housing technologies so that they can become readily available in the marketplace. They are working on both the whole house performance analysis and some of the new and innovative technologies required for NZE housing.


Building green net zero homes across Canada is just got started. Natural Resources Canada has a program that’s helping five builders build five net-zero homes each to support a rapid evolution to affordable net zero homes – NZE.
