Obama Administration Expands Better Buildings Challenge to Multifamily Housing, Launches New Programs to Boost U.S. Energy Efficiency
(Washington, D.C. - December 3, 2013) Building on $2 billion in financing commitments from the private sector for energy efficiency updates to commercial buildings under the president's Better Buildings Challenge, the U.S. Departments of Energy and Housing and Urban Development today expanded the Challenge to multifamily housing such as apartments and condominiums and launched the Better Buildings Accelerators to support state- and local government-led efforts to cut energy waste and eliminate market and technical barriers to greater building efficiency. The Obama Administration also announced it will challenge federal agencies to further expand their use of performance- based contracts through 2016 to upgrade the energy efficiency of federal buildings at no cost to taxpayers--helping the federal government save money and further reduce energy use.
