CBEA evolves to the Better Buildings Alliance

January 17, 2013

Starting this year, DOE’s Commercial Building Energy Alliance will be benefitting from a closer connection to other efforts in the Better Buildings Initiative. The goal of the Better Buildings Initiative is to drive 20 percent or greater energy savings in the commercial and industrial sectors by 2020 through innovation, new technologies, and profiling leadership. The Alliance is a cornerstone of the efforts and as such will evolve to the “Better Buildings Alliance.” Better Buildings Alliance members who commit to increased transparency and a minimum of a 20 percent energy improvement goal by 2020 are also eligible for higher-level recognition through the Better Buildings Challenge.
