In 2008, DOE launched the Better Buildings Alliance to bring  leaders from the nation’s commercial building industry together to share and advance solutions in energy efficiency. Through the Alliance, building owners, operators, and managers in different market sectors voluntarily work with DOE’s network of research and technical experts to develop and deploy innovative, cost-effective, energy-saving solutions that lead to advanced technologies, more profitable businesses, and better buildings.

The Alliance advances the Administration’s goal to achieve 20% energy savings in U.S. buildings. If achieved, would save the country approximately $80 billion annually on energy bills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create new jobs.  There are now more than 200 companies and organizations in the alliance representing more than 10 billion square feet of real estate. These partners have identified and implemented a variety of energy efficiency solutions and achieved substantial energy savings in their buildings. Upon joining, Alliance partners make an important commitment to participate in Alliance activities that support energy savings in commercial buildings. Partners are encouraged to set energy savings goals, develop innovative energy resources, and adopt advanced cost-effective market and technology strategies. DOE’s technical experts engage with these partners to advance their energy savings goals through technology and market solutions activities, to facilitate sharing of best practices and proven strategies among industry peers.

The Alliance has played a foundational role in the Better Buildings Initiative by providing an action network of experts to develop innovative, replicable solutions that transform the way market partners achieve their energy savings goals. In 2015, the Alliance continued its growth, with 12 new partners and 7 new affiliates. The Alliance Technology Solutions Teams introduced 40 industry resources and launched two technology campaigns.
