Accelerators

  • carousel Better Buildings Accelerator Partners Meet at the White House

The Better Buildings Initiative is a national leadership initiative calling on corporate chief executive officers, university presidents, utilities, state and local officials, and other leaders to make substantial commitments to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and plants, save money, and increase competitiveness. The cornerstones are a commitment to a 20% or more savings target across the organizations’ portfolios and a commitment to share strategies that work, substantiated by energy data across the portfolios. As part of the President's Climate Action Plan, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is expanding this initiative to engage leaders in a set of Better Buildings Accelerators designed to demonstrate specific innovative policies and approaches, which upon successful demonstration will accelerate investment in energy efficiency.
