One thought on “Energy Efficiency in Affordable Housing

  1. HUD does not fund “innovation nor prototypes” to achieve highly energy efficient housing let alone a zero energy house (ZEH)standard, as is a goal in the 27 nation EU by 2019, and in California the aim is 2020. Seven nations mandate that all new residences must include solar. HUD, and the USA, is behind the times.

    HUD would not support the demonstration of the major components of a zero energy house (1152 sf) assembled in under one hour employing ten fiber composite panels. This development is a sequel to the 30 minute assembly of a “World House” at the UN in NYC. The concept dates to the Usonian ideas of architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930’s!

    America has the dubious distinction of having the poorest residential construction standards compared to developed nations.

    America has to wake up the times, not make excuses and perpetuating what we know does not work in this age.
