Building America Puts Residential Research Results to Work

Research output: NRELBrochure


Residential buildings use more than 20% of the energy consumed annually in the United States. To help reduce that energy use, the Department of Energy (DOE) and its Building America partners conduct research to develop advanced building energy systems that make homes and communities much more energy-efficient. DOE and its partners design, build, and evaluate attractive, comfortable homes thatincrease performance with little or no increase in construction costs.
