How does your building perform?
High performance buildings maximize efficiency, minimize energy and water use, and provide a healthy environment for occupants. The Department of Energy reports that US buildings consume 45 quadrillion BTUs of energy annually (US Energy Information Administration). The building sector is responsible for 45% of all CO2 emissions and the average commercial building wastes 30% of the energy it consumes.
This website, sponsored by North Carolina Building Performance Association (NCBPA) serves as a one-stop online resource for learning about, and taking action on, building performance. This site will navigate you to best practices for designing, constructing, improving and maintaining buildings to perform well, rebates and incentives for owners and operators, DIY tips for restaurants, retail shops and many other building types to save energy and improve performance, Contractor Directory for architects, commissioning agents and other contractors able to improve the performance of buildings across North Carolina and so much more.
