The Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office (BTO) has released its draft Multi-Year Program Plan for public comment.

The draft provides a broad overview of building energy use and efficiency opportunities, and the strategies and goals of BTO. The aim is to substantially accelerate the rate of efficiency improvements in new and existing residential and commercial buildings over the next five years.

The BTO seeks feedback on this plan from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders, including building owners and operators, and the general public. Comments will be used to help revise and finalize the MYPP, and to help us improve the effectiveness of program activities.

Stakeholders can submit feedback through the Request for Comments document (downloadable below), or the official Request for Information, both of which contain specific questions to guide responses. Comments should be submitted by email to by November 13, 2015.
