NBI Research Will Asses Actual Energy Use of New Buildings

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

A $150,000 grant from the U.S. EPA is funding research by the New Buildings Institute (NBI) of White Salmon, Washington, to assess actual energy use of newly constructed buildings. NBI will work with subcontractors Eley Associates of San Francisco and Architectural Energy Corporation of Boulder, Colorado on the project. Using the Energy Star® system as a benchmark, the team will use actual energy bills to compare energy performance of the buildings to their design intent. Project details are available at www.newbuildings.org or from Karen Butler at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 202/564-9717, or by e-mail at butler.karen@epa.gov.
