Event Description

When it comes to building, remodeling, designing or developing GreenHome’s that are above code, there are many different  labels to choose from.  Each greenhome certification comes with different requirements, opportunities, costs, 3rd party oversight and tools and resources to guide you.

Which is right for you and your clients? 

In this session we will help you make sense of the different GreenHome certification labels by comparing and contrasting LEED for Homes, National Green Building Standard, GreenStar Homes, Green Communities, Passive House, DOE Zero Energy Ready Home, Energy Star for Homes and the Living Building Challenge.  We will look each system individually and then together through the lens of cost, 5 key categories, 3rd party oversight requirements, popularity, growth, changes and even political affiliations. You will also learn which programs apply best to different building types; Single/ multi family, mid rise, rehabs, remodels and additions and new construction across market and rate and affordable housing will all be discussed.

Are you ready for constantly changing energy & green codes, the expanding of the new Green MLS and the growth of the 80 billion dollar residential greenhome market?
