Learn about how this world-class research program can help the U.S. building industry promote and construct homes that are better for business, homeowners, and the nation.

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION: BUILDING AMERICA TECHNOLOGY-TO-MARKET ROADMAPS, DE-FOA-0001326—DEADLINE: APRIL 30, 2015, 5:00 p.m. ET

The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to gather industry feedback for three Technology-to-Market Roadmaps that address technical challenges for low-load homes in these residential building systems: high performance moisture-managed envelope; optimal comfort (HVAC); and indoor air quality and ventilation.

Feedback from this RFI will be used to develop a new Building America Research-to-Market Plan and develop future Building America Funding Opportunity Announcements. Respond by April 30, 2015, 5:00 p.m. ET. Learn more.

Review the video of the RFI webinar held on April 7, 2015 to learn more about this opportunity.

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Building America program has been a source of innovations in residential building energy performance, durability, quality, affordability, and comfort for 20 years. This world-class research program partners with industry (including many of the top U.S. home builders) to bring cutting-edge innovations and resources to market.

For example, the Solution Center provides expert building science information for building professionals looking to gain a competitive advantage by delivering high performance homes. At Building America meetings, researchers and industry partners can gather to generate new ideas for improving energy efficiency of homes. And, Building America research teams and DOE national laboratories offer the building industry specialized expertise and new insights from the latest research projects.
