For the world to meet its climate goals, we all need to play a part in transforming the built environment to zero energy and zero carbon. That’s why we at EEBA (Energy & Environmental  Building Alliance ) are setting our sights on making Zero Energy and Zero Carbon homes attainable and available for everyone through zero energy home builder training and consumer engagement. 

Zero Energy Home Builder Training on the Path to Zero

To do this, we have substantially increased educational content, training and professional designations to support builders who are on the path to zero energy and zero carbon home construction.  Check out the Intro to EEBA and more at the  EEBA Academy which features more than 250 hours of on-demand education including the Net Zero Building Professional designation.  To learn more, sign up to receive alerts about our weekly Webinar Series, and our EEBA High Performance Home Summit

Building Demand for Zero Energy Homes

We also continue to cast our net broadly through our expanded partnerships with  Team Zero and the Zero Energy Project. Together we are building demand for zero energy homes by arming consumers with the information, programs, and local professional resources needed for them to plan their own path to zero.     

List Your Zero Energy Homes on the North American Inventory of Zero Energy Homes

If you are on the EEBA or Team Zero mailing list, you will be receiving this free Zero Energy Project Newsletter 10 times per year. All EEBA builders and designers who have designed or built a zero energy home are invited to list their zero homes in Team Zero’s Inventory of Zero Energy Homes, and be sure your business is listed in the Zero Energy Project’s Directory of Zero Energy Building Professionals.

The Future of Zero is Now: the EEBA Team Zero NextGen Scholarship Fund 

Complementing our builder training programs, we have started the EEBA Team Zero NexGen Scholarship Fund to provide sustainable construction career pathways for all, especially for those who are currently underrepresented including minorities, women, and veterans reentering the workforce. This program will help ensure that the future of home building will continue on the path to zero energy and zero carbon. These scholarships subsidize online education at no charge as well as attendance to our yearly Summit – Sept 20-22, 2022 in Scottsdale, AZ.

Our Mission

Your donations help all three organizations in our cooperative effort to move the housing industry on the path to zero energy and zero carbon housing as fast as possible.
