NEMA’s High Performance Buildings Council (HPBC) is a strategic initiative established to promote the adoption of high performance NEMA member products and systems that increase the energy efficiency, safety, resilience, sustainability, productivity, and security of federal, commercial, and multi-family residential buildings.
The HPBC’s most important goal is to create and identify business opportunities for NEMA members and offer solutions that will develop market demand for products that contribute to high performance buildings. The HPBC seeks to accomplish this goal by:
- Developing and advocating for federal, state, and local policies that promote high performance buildings;
- Encouraging performance transparency through building labels, ratings, and benchmarking and disclosure;
- Developing and promoting financing solutions for building owners to assist with the up-front cost of investing in a high performance building;
- Laying the groundwork for high performance buildings through code and standard development, adoption, and enforcement; and
- Marketing high performance building products and solutions to building owners and managers to educate them on how these solutions can increase the performance, safety, security and sustainability of their buildings.
