Prologis partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop and implement solutions to retrofit existing buildings to reduce annual energy consumption by at least 30% versus pre-retrofit energy use as part of DOE’s Commercial Building Partnership (CBP) program.
This Fact Sheet provides an overview of the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines project. The Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) are working with industry stakeholders to develop voluntary national guidelines that will improve the quality and consistency of commercial building workforce training and certification programs for five key energy-related jobs.
Commercial mortgages currently do not fully account for energy factors in underwriting, valuation and asset management, particularly as it relates to the impact of energy costs on net operating income. As a consequence, energy efficiency is not properly valued and energy risks are not properly assessed and mitigated. Commercial mortgages are a large lever and could be a significant channel for scaling energy efficiency investments.
Work with the buildings industry to develop and maintain data, methods, and tools to understand and improve the sustainability of buildings at a fundamental level and continue to develop and support the U.S. Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Database, which provides the starting point for LCA.
Following the tornado in 2007, Greensburg made a commitment to rebuilding green. The case studies in this database offer examples of projects that have been rebuilt, and include stories about public, private single-family residential, multi-family residential, and commercial buildings.
Cool roofs can help many building owners save money while protecting the environment. This guidebook has been created to help you understand how cool roofs work, what kinds of cool roof options are available, and how to determine if cool roofing is appropriate for your building. If you are planning a new building or replacing or restoring an existing roof, cool roofs should be considered as an energy efficiency option. Cool roof products exist for virtually every kind of roof
This fact sheet published by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory discusses the lab's newest building, the Research Support Facility (RSF). The RSF is a showcase for ultra-efficient workplaces. Various renewable energy and energy efficiency features have been employed so that the building achieves a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
This issue highlights National Renewable Energy Laboratory's Research Support Facility and its foundations in energy efficiency.
This brochure describes Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory technical assistance in Greensburg, Kansas after the devastation of a tornado.
