For more than 20 years, New Buildings Institute has been pushing for better energy performance in buildings. 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. As the building industry has shifted from measuring performance in kilowatt-hours to measuring performance in carbon emissions, NBI has been a key player in shaping the policies and programs that help cities and states set a course toward carbon neutrality.
