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.

Wind Energy is a Renewable Energy Source

Small Wind Energy is a Renewable Energy Source that can be mounted on homes and businesses to generate renewable energy and reduce electricity bills while growing local energy security.

Save Energy with Weatherization for Energy Efficiency

Energy efficient heating with weatherization tightens the building shell to save energy by preventing heat loss and cold infiltration from weather extremes. Insulation, caulking, vapor barriers, thermal barriers and high performance appliances are core energy saving weatherization strategies for energy efficient heating and cost saving cooling.

Solar Thermal Renewable Energy Generation

Solar thermal renewable energy generation and solar hot water heating can reduce energy costs and generate extra energy for resale to a local utility company.

Solar photovoltaic - PV

Solar photovoltaic (PV) energy generation on homes, businesses and government rooftops and walls can supplement energy efficiency with renewable energy incentives and net metering sale to utility companies.

Solar Technologies for Energy Efficiency

Solar techniques for energy savings include window sunlight and shade, solar tube skylights, light shelves, solar powered pathway lights and signage, as well as solar PV and solar thermal units for power and water applications.

Sensors and Monitors for Energy Efficiency

Sensors and Monitors for Energy Efficiency include energy monitors, motion detectors, timers, smart controllers, smart thermometers, and other electronic devices that improve behavior results.

Renewable Energies for Energy Conservation

Renewable energy efficiency and renewable generation reduce waste and use of constrained resources such as petroleum and coal - and improve air quality, water quality, biodiversity and economic competitiveness

Passive Solar Building Design

Passive Solar Building Design optimizes natural light, ventilation, site location, orientation, and other non-technology systems to reduce wasted energy and maximize use of natural resources.

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.

Insulation For Energy Efficiency

Insulation is the best use of weatherization money - attics, ceilings, floors, walls, pipes, and caulking of holes and cracks reduce energy consumption by as much as 25% and can also reduce the size and cost of HVAC equipment.

High Performance Appliances

High Performance Appliances from heaters and air conditioners to refrigerators and freezers - to televisions and computers all save money on energy use and room conditioning over the entire life of the appliance.

Biomass as Renewable Energy

Biomass is a new energy generation program that converts agricultural waste, etc. into methane, ethanol, etc. for use as fuel or electrical energy generation.

Behavior Strategies for Energy Efficiency

Behavior Strategies for Energy Efficiency include monitoring energy use, comparing actual behavior with perceptions, understanding true cost of energy, and supplementing controls with sensors and governors.

Electric Infrastructure for Energy Efficiency

Electric Infrastructure for Energy Efficiency includes the electric and natural gas distribution network, as well as energy generation, mining, drilling and pollution control. Energy jobs in renewable energy can bring this infrastructure to local communities.

Heating & Air Conditioning

Heating and air conditioning (HVAC) use much of a building's energy. Effective insulation and caulking can reduce the needed size of HVAC equipment and save money. Natural air ventilation can also be balanced with HVAC to save money and increase indoor air quality.

Communications for Weatherization

Communications for Weatherization includes helping building owners understand the ROI for energy efficiency, the productivity gains from indoor air quality and new metrics for measuring results.

Controllers for Energy Efficiency

Controllers for building management can add savings to behavior strategies, improve productivity by controlling room temperature, lighting, air quality and sound levels.

Energy Conservation

Energy conservation in buildings starts with passive solar design, high efficiency HVAC, behavior modification, ease of maintenance, and continues with high performance maintenance.

Hydrogen & Fuel Cells

Hydrogen fuel cells can be used in building energy systems. A hydrogen fuel cell uses hydrogen as its fuel and oxygen as its oxidant; hydrocarbons and alcoholsor chlorine and chlorine dioxide.

Roofing for Weatherization & Energy Efficiency

Roofing for energy efficiency and weatherization varies by hot or cold regions, but can use insulation and color to reduce your energy bills and improve comfort during seasonal extremes. Roofing is your protection against solar and wind.

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is a renewable source of energy and temperature control that can be used for residential, commercial or industrial facilities. Measuring geothermal potential for a region is an important ROI metric.

Air Ducts

Air ducts can lose conditioned air - hot and cold - and insulation and proper sizing can save you lots of money, improve indoor air quality for health, and reduce noise. we help you identify air duct solutions.

Window Replacement for Condensation Problems

Window replacement is an extreme measure when trying to resolve the problem of condensation; there are easier measures that should be first taken; if these steps do not work, replacing windows could be a must for homeowners

Innovation and Revenue Streams for Weatherization

Whole house weatherization needs innovations to cope with widely different circumstances in existing house conditions, as well as innovative revenue streams. Here are some solutions.



WAP Weatherization Assistance Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) enables low-income families to permanently reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient.

DOE Weatherization Assistance Program: Expanded Access for Multifamily Firms

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has streamlined the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) application process.

Save Energy with Weatherization for Energy Efficiency

Energy efficient heating with weatherization tightens the building shell to save energy by preventing heat loss and cold infiltration from weather extremes. Insulation, caulking, vapor barriers, thermal barriers and high performance appliances are core energy saving weatherization strategies for energy efficient heating and cost saving cooling.

Best Practices for Energy Savings with Weatherization and Energy Efficiency

Sustainable energy depends on best practices for Weatherization and Energy Efficiency start with behavior - turn it off! Energy audits identify specific energy savings problems in wasted energy and optimize behaviors and remodeling for energy efficiency and weatherization.

Purpose of Weatherization

The purpose of weatherization is to reduce the cost and environmental impact of wasted energy use and improve comfort and health of residents, and productivity of workers in commercial buildings.

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.

Training & Technical Assistance for Weatherization & Energy Efficiency

Training & technical assistance for weatherization and energy efficiency provide skills and knowledge for green jobs, saving utility costs and reducing environmental climate change.

HUD Section 8 Housing

HUD Section 8 provides programs such as Section 8 Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program, a Homeownership Option Program (HOP), connected to HUD's Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities to create strong, sustainable communities by connecting housing to jobs, fostering local innovation, and helping to build a clean energy economy.
