New Buildings Institute

New Buildings Institute (NBI) works collaboratively with industry market players – governments, utilities, energy efficiency advocates, and building professionals to promote advanced design practices, innovative technologies, public policies and programs that improve energy efficiency at the highest levels and decarbonize the built environment.

Throughout its 25-year history, NBI has become a trusted and independent resource helping to drive buildings that are better for people and the environment.

NBI envisions a transformed built environment that is carbon-free, sustainable, and energy-efficient and supports thriving economies that benefit all people and the planet. With this vision, they then set out to create the research that informs their outreach, education, tool and policy development aimed at creating market change.

NBI will continue to fuel innovation that accelerates adoption of “next” practice in energy performance by the energy efficiency and building industries. They are helping to create a future where the built environment represent an effective use of resources, a positive force against climate change, and a driver for local economies that creates jobs and saves money for homeowners and business on energy costs.
