ORLANDO, Fla. - The Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH) announced its 2007 Top 10 Technologies to housing industry professionals at the International Builders' Show. With its Top 10, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) PATH takes a glimpse into the future of homebuilding.

"The updated 2007 Top 10 Technologies hold the most promise for improving the quality of our homes," said Assistant Secretary Darlene F. Williams of HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research. "These technologies are ready now and they can perform in the houses that we build tomorrow."

PATH first introduced its Top 10 Technologies in 2004. It has updated the list to reflect innovations within the housing industry and technological evolutions. The latest Top 10 is intended to alert builders to innovations ready for adoption, including mold resistant gypsum, solar water heating, combined heat and power (CHP), and super-sized (vertical) insulated concrete forms.

Technologies profiled by PATH are selected for their strengths in one or more of the following areas: quality and durability; affordability; energy efficiency; environmental performance; safety and disaster mitigation.
