New Funding Opportunity Includes Emphasis on Building Energy Codes

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO) has announced the availability of up to $11.5 million for a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) titled, “Building America Industry Partnerships and Research Priorities for High-Performance Housing Innovation – 2018.”

As part of this announcement, BTO supports research priorities in the residential building sector related to building energy codes. Further research in this area will help address current gaps, providing data and technical analysis around the market prevalence of key technologies and efficiency measures. This helps to inform future building technology research and development activities and building energy codes decision-making processes.

Topic 3 – Gap Analysis of Building Industry Standard Practices 

This topic focuses on research related to building industry standard practices. Construction practices vary significantly across the U.S. and there is often a shortage of information depicting how industry standards are applied in practice, including the influence of advancing technologies and construction practices. DOE supports further data and technical analysis of the market prevalence of key technologies and energy efficiency measures to inform decision-making processes related to building energy codes and standards, as well as inform future building technology research and development.
