The Honda Smart Home is a fully functional zero net energy (ZNE) home located in Davis, California, containing many advanced design elements. Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) partnered with Honda to monitor the performance and grid integration of the Honda Smart Home. PG&E also organized an event on May 1, 2014 in order to showcase the Honda Smart Home to the building community as a ZNE demonstration. PG&E contracted TRC to evaluate the achievement of the following goals through the Honda Smart Home demonstration:

  • Demonstrate that ZNE homes are feasible
  • Measure the impact of specific technologies and systems
  • Increase attendees’ ZNE knowledge
  • Influence builders’ future practices to include ZNE strategies

This report presents the results of this evaluation, and TRC's suggestions for future demonstrations.
