DOE Asset Score

Energy Department Partners with Performance Systems Development to Deploy Asset Score and Identify Energy Efficiency Savings in Buildings

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a partnership with Performance Systems Development (PSD) to promote the use of DOE’s Building Energy Asset Scoring Tool (the Asset Score). PSD is part of the Asset Score National Leadership Network, comprised of 21 companies, federal agencies, and state and local governments committed to working with DOE to either use the Asset Score to diagnose energy efficiency opportunities in their buildings and energy-related building systems, or to support educational opportunities to spread knowledge about the Asset Score. To date, the Asset Score has been used on 825 commercial and multifamily residential buildings nationwide totaling more than 83 million square feet.

Penn Residential Energy Codes Launches Program Website

Performance Systems Development (PSD) was selected to implement the Penn Residential Energy Codes Program in Pennsylvania. When this study concludes in 2017, we’ll calculate how much energy we saved as a result of these training activities, but to do this we need to understand energy use in current new homes. PSD will contact randomly selected…
