Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0001000
Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) the Building Technologies Office (BTO) seeks to establish a performance rating mechanism for assessing the energy performance of fenestration attachments. DOE and the fenestration attachments industry have identified accurate and objective performance data as a critical need for product adoption. The selected applicant to the Craft FOA will provide a third-party rating, certification, and labeling program, which will enable consumers to distinguish among energy-efficient attachment products and models. The underlying data will assist architects and engineers in better understanding the energy impact of particular products. The Certification and Rating of Attachments for Fenestration Technologies (CRAFT) awardee will develop rating, certification, performance verification, and labeling standards for residential and commercial fenestration attachments. The successful applicant will also develop a Program to rate fenestration attachment energy performance and provide accurate and useful product comparison criteria, allowing end users in residential and commercial markets to assess the relative energy cost/benefits of fenestration attachments.
