Better Buildings Residential Program Solution Center Now Online

November 2014

Essential resources for residential efficiency program administrators are now available.

For builders embracing a greener, more energy efficient approach to new residential projects, an effective and well-oiled residential efficiency program just got easier. Launched in October, the Department of Energy's Better Buildings Residential Program Solution Center provides an online repository of examples, lessons, and resources for residential energy efficiency programs to help guide the planning, operation, and evaluation of their programs.

This latest addition to DOE's online Building America Solutions Center reflects the expertise and experience of numerous collaborators, including the Better Buildings Neighborhood Program (BBNP) grant recipients and partners, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Sponsors. Implemented by PNNL with guidance from the BBNP team, the Solution Center provides easy to use “handbooks” that explain how and why specific stages of a residential efficiency program should be implemented. The handbooks also offer examples and insight into specific implementation steps and links to related topics.
