A team led by Performance Systems Development (PSD) has been selected by the Department of Energy, Building Technologies Office (BTO) as part of a $6M effort to investigate whether investing in education, training, and outreach programs can produce a significant change in residential building code compliance rates.

Residential building energy codes set minimum efficiency requirements for newly constructed and renovated buildings, and BTO has a goal to reduce energy consumption across the residential building sector by at least 50%. PSD is one of seven selectees across the nation. Learn more about DOE’s Building Energy Codes Program at: http://www.energycodes.gov/news
