The Retrofit for Energy and Environmental Performance (REEP) Program Act

HR 1778 - The Retrofit for Energy and Environmental Performance (REEP) Program Act

ARRA funding for Energy-Efficient Building Science

Whole building design approaches optimize the interactions among building systems and components.

Net Zero Energy

Net Zero Energy programs support energy efficiency, renewable energy and smart communities to reduce building energy consumption from 40% of our infrastructure. Net Zero Energy buildings can actually PRODUCE more energy than they use.

Energy Star Programs by DOE & EPA

Energy Star Programs by DOE & EPA help energy efficiency, weatherization, renewable energy and construction industries research and deploy energy efficient standards for products, methods, and consumer behaviors.

IECC - International Energy Conservation Code

IECC codes promote stronger building energy codes and help government agencies adopt, implement, and enforce building and construction codes for building energy use.

EnergySmart Home Scale (E-Scale)

Builders Challenge, the EnergySmart Home Scale E-Scale is an easy tool for homebuyers and homeowners to make smart energy efficiency and weatherization decisions when purchasing, renting, or updating a home.



DOE to Invest $8 in Weatherization and Energy Efficiency Efforts for Energy Saving Strategies

Energy saving with DOE's 2009 investment of nearly $8 billion in state and local weatherization and energy efficiency efforts for energy savings as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Energy Star is Revising EnergyStar House Ratings

The EPA is preparing to roll out tougher rules to ensure the logo represents robust environmental standards.

DOE Research and Development for Energy Efficiency

David Rodgers, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency , appeared before Congress to discuss the potential for increased energy efficiency in new and existing buildings to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

R&D Research for Market Deployment of Net-Zero Energy Buildings and Efficiency Technologies

DOE Appliance Standards and Lighting

DOE's second area of focus is ensuring that consumers and businesses have energy efficient choices in energy consuming equipment, appliances and lighting. This can be achieved by making appliance standards more stringent, and by accelerating the market penetration of advanced lighting, equipment and appliances.



Energy Star Ratings

Energy Star Ratings help identify energy efficient products, buildings, and methods. DOE and EPA both conduct Energy Star research, commercialization programs and energy efficiency rating evaluations.

Energy Audits

Energy Audits to identify weatherization projects can help reduce energy use and improve energy efficiency, as well as indoor air quality, health and productivity. Energy audits identify thermal bridging, leaks, pollutants and other building envelop problems.

Contractor Certification Programs

Certified energy efficiency and weatherization contractors are trained and evaluated for best practices, knowledge of energy efficiency technologies, and for knowledge of regulation compliance and incentives programs.

New Buildings Save Energy when Fully Weatherized

New Buildings Save Energy when Fully Weatherized with an Energy Audit to Guide Tight Construction and reduce HVAC specifications to meet proper indoor air quality guidelines.

Lighting for Energy Efficiency

Lighting energy efficiency includes energy audits implemented with lighting retrofits with LED, CFL and HID light bulbs and fixtures as well as natural light, task lighting, and motion sensors to automate reduced energy use.

Energy Star Programs by DOE & EPA

Energy Star Programs by DOE & EPA help energy efficiency, weatherization, renewable energy and construction industries research and deploy energy efficient standards for products, methods, and consumer behaviors.
