Department of Energy - Builder's Challenge
The Building America Builder’s Challenge Initiative is helping to change the face of home energy efficiency by recognizing industry leaders and promoting the technical pathways to Net-Zero Energy for all Americans.
- National partnerships with leading green building programs, including NAHB's National Green Building ProgramTM, USGBC's LEED for Homes program, and MASCO's Environments for Living®, enable builders to easily get multiple certifications and the recognition and differentiation they deserve for building the most durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient homes on the market.
- Research programs and third-party verifiers, including DOE's Building America, RESNET, and Southface ensure that the best whole-house energy solutions developed in the laboratory are translated and installed properly in the field.
- Real estate, utility, local government, financial, educational, manufacturing, and media partners create a network of locally available support to make it happen where it counts!
