DOE Intends to Issue a Funding Opportunity- Renovation of Buildings with Energy-Efficient Innovation

DOE Intends to Issue a Funding Opportunity that Accelerates the Renovation of Buildings with Energy-Efficient Innovations

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) announced its intent to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on behalf of the Building Technologies Office (BTO) called “Advanced Building Construction (ABC) – 2021.” This FOA would fund research intended to accelerate the renovation and construction of affordable, appealing, and energy-efficient buildings, contributing to a carbon-neutral building economy in America by 2050.


This FOA, in support of BTO’s Advanced Building Construction Initiative, will seek to accomplish this by funding R&D projects that would benefit all Americans–including underserved communities. ABC seeks innovations that:

  • result in high performance, low carbon buildings with lower energy bills, improved indoor air quality, improved comfort, and reduced maintenance;

  • deliver faster building renovations with less disruption to building occupants; and,

  • incorporate modernized construction and manufacturing techniques to drive down costs and scale production of both low carbon new buildings and retrofit components.
