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.

To maximize the benefits of converting to light-emitting diode (LED) technology from the traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) technology used in most parking lot lighting, CBEA members developed a performance specificationPDF that should be applied to a specific site, rather than a specific product.
To maximize the benefits of converting traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) technology to high-efficiency alternative technologies, including LED, induction, and fluorescence, a CBEA Project Team developed parking structure lighting performance specifications that should be applied to specific sites rather than specific products.
A CBEA Project Team working to support the market introduction of high-efficiency troffers developed a specification that allowed for high-efficiency LED and fluorescent technologies, and addressed the 2'x2' category of troffer products. Version 3.0 of the Specification was released, expanding the specification to address 1'x4' and 2'x4' product configurations. Potential savings from applying the specification range from 15-45% on a one-for-one basis and up to 75% with the use of controls.
This guide explains the benefits and process of building commissioning thereby providing owners and other stakeholders a tool to improve building efficiency and operation. It is intended to be a resource, as well as a call to action, for building owners and facility managers who want to verify their buildings are not only operating as originally intended, but also as efficiently as possible. Commissioning of new construction and major renovations is the primary focus, although commissioning of existing buildings is also briefly discussed as well.
This guide provides an overview of the different energy audit options available and information on how to select an energy auditor.
