Building America Best Practices Series
The U.S. Department o Energy’s (DOE) Building America Program is comprised o public/privatepartnerships that conduct systems research toimprove overall housing perormance, increasehousing durability and comort, reduce energy use, and increase energy security or America’shomeowners. Program activities ocus on ndingsolutions or both new and existing homes, as wellas integrating clean onsite energy systems that willallow homebuilders to provide homes that produceas much energy than they use. In addition to theDOE management and sta, Building Americaincludes seven consortia, our national laboratories,and hundreds o builders, manuacturers, andservice providers. Building America works closely  with the U.S. Department o Housing and UrbanDevelopment’s (HUD) Partnership or AdvancingTechnology in Housing (PATH) and works withother ederal agencies to coordinate research nd-ings and disseminate inormation. In addition, DOEco-manages the ENERGY STAR Program along withthe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Thesepartners make the Program a successul source o knowledge and innovation or industry practitionersand government policy makers.The U.S. DOE Building America Program unded thedevelopment o this series o handbooks. DOE alsounded the Building America consortia and nationallaboratories to orm the basis or these best practices.The seven consortia are listed on the back cover o this document. The consortia have taken on thehard work o applied research, eld testing, trainingbuilders, and transorming the results into buildingpractices. Numerous drawings, descriptions, photos,and case studies originated with the consortia.Many builders have chosen to use the Building America process in collaboration with the consortia.Builders are quoted throughout the Best PracticesSeries, and more than a dozen builder case studiesare eatured in this document. These buildersdeserve thankul recognition or contributing toBuilding America’s success, the Best PracticesSeries, and or urthering the application o solartechnology.Building America partners worked diligently on thisproject to urther the cause o energy eciency, solarenergy, and zero energy homes. These groups have voluntarily supplied technical materials, review comments, and photographs. Contributors includethe Solar Rating and Certication Corporation, theFlorida Solar Energy Center, SunPower Corporation,Heliodyne, Inc., Aztec Solar, Aurora Energy LLC.,Decker Homes, Alternative Power Enterprises, Inc.,Solargenix Energy LLC, the Sacramento MunicipalUtility District, Lakeland Electric, the SouthwestTechnology Development Institute at New MexicoState University, Rheem Water Heaters, andSolmetric Corporation.This project required coordination among thenational laboratories. Pacic Northwest NationalLaboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have taken the lead at producing this document.The National Renewable Energy Laboratory madeits library o Building America, solar, and zeroenergy home documents available to the authors,reviewed the drats, and has responsibility orposting the document to the Building America website. Researchers at Sandia National Laboratory reviewed the document as well.The authors and DOE oer their gratitude tothe many contributors that made this projecta success.Unless otherwise noted, photographs weretaken by Michael Baechler o Paciic NorthwestNational Laboratory.
Building America welcomesreader eedback on the BestPractices Series. Please submityour comments to Michael Baechler(michael.baechler@pnl.gov) orPat Love (lovepm@ornl.gov).
