Breakthrough research and testing on design approaches and technology applications are driving advances in building energy performance. NBI’s Advanced Building program features studies on mechanical systems, lighting design, plug loads and more that are the bedrock for guidance development.
Deep Energy Retrofits
Deep energy retrofits offer a chance to make the 99% of buildings that are already built energy efficient. NBI research examines holistic approaches to renovation that integrate lighting, mechanical, envelope, plug loads and other energy loads to transform existing buildings into “new” high performance projects.
