The High Performance Building Coalition (HPBC), which NASEO is an active member of, will organize and host a series of events in support of High Performance Building Week. Taking place June 13-17, 2016, members of the HPBC will work with members of Congress to expand awareness of the importance of high performance buildings.
NASEO Buildings Program Manager, Todd Sims, will represent State Energy Offices during a Congressional Briefing on June 15th. The briefing will focus on the state and local policies and programs that are driving demand for green buildings in both the commercial and residential sectors. NASEO will be joined by ASHRAE, the Home Performance Coalition, Efficiency First, and the National Association of Home Builders.
The week will also include briefings on federal engagement in efficiency standards, policy recommendations from the building industry, congressional receptions, and more. For more information, or to RSVP for any of the events, please visit here.
The High Performance Building Coalition is a coalition of approximately 200 organizations that provides guidance and support to the High Performance Building Caucus of the US Congress. We support legislation and policies that protect life and property, promote innovative building technologies, enhance US economic competitiveness, increase energy and water efficiency in the built-environment, advance sustainable and resilient communities, and support the development of private sector standards, codes and guidelines that address these concerns.
