New York Leading the Northeast in Net-Zero Buildings According to New Net-Zero Energy Status Report

A report released today, New York Getting to Net-zero Status Report, by NBI shows New York State is leading the Northeast in net-zero buildings with 27 documented ongoing and completed net-zero building projects and a total of 132 net-zero, high-performance, and Passive House building projects which implement a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint. Funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the report addresses net-zero development misconceptions and shows that steady cost compression can lower net-zero construction costs to be competitive with conventional construction. Additionally, the report shows that in just the past 10 years, the net-zero market has seen tremendous growth – and its trajectory is expected to continue upward.
