To improve energy efficiency in our nation's homes, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today launched two new residential Better Buildings Accelerators. The Home Upgrade Program Accelerator and Home Energy Information Accelerator will focus on streamlining processes for improving the energy efficiency of homes and expanding awareness of homes' energy performance.
The Home Upgrade Program Accelerator is looking for residential energy efficiency programs to become Partners and demonstrate a range of best practices related to optimizing operations, such as adoption of common data standards—known as HPXML—to enable streamlined data exchange. Register for the “Introduction to Better Buildings Home Upgrade Program Accelerator” webinar on Thursday, June 18, at 2:00 p.m. EDT to learn more.
Through the Home Energy Information Accelerator, national organizations, federal agencies, and regional, state, and local leaders in real estate and energy efficiency will expand the availability and use of reliable home energy information at relevant points in residential real estate transactions.
