The International Zero Energy Housing (ZEH) Project seeks to establish the creation of an International ZEH Coalition or Dialogue. The ZEH map is part of this initiative to recognize achievements of ZEH builders and to foster dialogue and share best practices between practitioners and industry stakeholders. Highlighted projects come from the seven partner countries that make up the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate: Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Korea, and the United States. Each project includes a profile page that gives builders the option to present photos, consumption/generation statistics, and a detailed description of building approaches used to achieve Zero Energy. A ZEH score is assigned to each project and is determined as a percentage of energy generated beyond the needs of the building.
