Energy Efficiency Study Compares Builder Home, Retrofit and Deep Retrofit Efficiencies

Initial results from a research study in East Tennessee shows that energy-efficient upgrades can pay off for homeowners by reducing heating costs by 35 to 65%. While the study focuses on improvements to existing homes new, unoccupied homes were used in order to keep the results as unbiased as possible.

Community Based Weatherization & Energy Efficiency

Community Based Weatherization & Energy Efficiency include block purchasing projects, HUD housing programs, state and local legislation (like AB 811 in California) and outreach programs such as free light bulbs and educational demonstrations.

Utility Companies & Energy Efficiency

Utility companies support energy efficiency in states where they profit from conservation MORE than energy consumption. Utility companies sometimes provide weatherization and energy efficiency training, incentives and services to reduce their peak load to prevent building new power generation plants.

SmartSchools Program

EnergySmart Schools are smart schools with energy efficiency, weatherization, renewable energy generation and behavior changes to reduce waste.

Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings face increasing regulation for energy efficiency, water conservation and indoor air quality.

Multi-family Housing

Multi-family housing can reduce energy bills with solar hot water, recycled water, energy efficiency programs, white roofs, and high performance HVAC systems. Learn more about the many options to reduce the cost and impact of energy in multi-family communities

Single Family Homes' Energy Efficiency and Weatherization

Reduce Energy Bills with Single Family Homes' Energy Efficiency and Weatherization for Indoor Air Quality, Comfort and Cost Effectiveness.

Manufactured Housing

Weatherization and energy efficiency of manufactured housing can save energy costs, improve indoor air quality and comfort, and reduce impact on the environment. Smart communities make incentives and technical assistance available to owners of manufactured housing.



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

Weatherization Certification & Energy Efficiency Course for New and Existing Homes

Professional energy efficiency training course programs focus on providing training for energy efficiency certification and are designed to help professionals increase their energy efficiency best practice knowledge and abilities. There are two main categories of energy efficiency certification courses including new homes and existing homes.

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.

Six Core Subjects of Weatherization Job Training

Under federal 2009 ARRA funding, California Community Services Division is receiving $185.2 million for the Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program and energy efficiency audits will install energy efficiency and health and safety measures in low-income California dwellings. Of that sum, CSD may use a portion to defray the cost of training workers in weatherization, energy efficiency audits, and post-installation inspection standards - all of which are considered "green" jobs.

Green for All in Seattle, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Newark, Atlanta

Green for All is  facilitating collaborations among green job practitioners and leaders in five cities and their respective counties--Seattle, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Newark, and Atlanta--to demonstrate pathways to green jobs at the local level.

Recovery Act Transparency and Reporting of Grant Funds

For the purposes of transparency, the Recovery Act requires a website to be established and maintained to track how and where tax dollars are being spent. 

Weatherization Training and Technical Assistance

Training and Technical Assistance activities are intended to maintain or increase the efficiency, quality and effectiveness of the Weatherization Program at all levels.

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.
