U.S. DOE, Gas Technology Institute Begin Energy Program

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Program recently awarded Gas Technology Institute (GTI) with a major new program aimed at cutting energy use and costs, and carbon emissions through residential retrofit applications in cold-weather climates.

GTI will lead a "Building America Team," which will support DOE's Better Buildings Initiative. The Initiative is aimed at bringing together multiple stakeholders to deliver energy efficiency upgrades to neighborhoods and cities.

"By developing and using tools to reduce residential energy use, we'll spur economic growth in America, and help homeowners make cost-cutting improvements in their homes," says Secretary of Energy Steven Chu.
