U.S. DOE Invests $6 Million to Increase Energy Efficiency of Schools, Offices, Stores and other U.S. Buildings

The U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Office's Commercial Buildings Integration Program recently announced nearly $6 million to accelerate energy efficiency in offices, schools and other buildings to help businesses and communities save money, create jobs, and reduce pollution.

“The Energy Department is committed to partnering with market leaders who demonstrate cutting edge energy-efficient technologies and practices in new and existing commercial buildings,” said Dr. David Danielson, Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. “These low-energy building solutions will reduce air pollution and help building owners and operators save money on their operating costs through best practices that can be replicated by others.”

In total, the eight competitively-selected projects will receive $6 million and with private sector cost sharing reach a total investment of $12.5 million.
