The market for residential zero-energy buildings grew 59 per cent across Canada and the United States last year, according to a new report.

The Zero Energy Residential Buildings Study[2] released by Team Zero[3] documents 22,146 units that are either in design, construction, or operation. These include single and multifamily projects that are working to achieve zero energy or zero energy-ready performance.

This study, now in its fourth year, works to answer questions about the viability of zero-energy homes in different markets, climates, and political jurisdictions. Team Zero is a coalition of organizations, manufacturers, and others working to grow the market share of zero energy and zero energy-ready homes and commercial buildings.

Other findings of the study include:
