Annual Report FY 2015-2016

Report / April 16, 2019 / New Buildings Institute

Increasing building energy efficiency is a process that we at New Buildings Institute have been active in for nearly 20 years. Whether driven by policy mandates, a corporate resolution, or by innovative engineers and architects striving for a better end result, NBI’s tools and resources can help. We offer methods of measurement and comparison, education, design guides and code development. Ultimately we are working toward dramatic reductions in energy use in the built environment so we recommend goal setting as the first necessary step. Whether the goal is designing to zero energy (ZE) or aiming for a lower energy use intensity (EUI) over time, starting should begin with the end in mind.
