On May 20, 2022, New Buildings Institute (NBI) and RMI submitted comments in response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Resilient and Efficient Codes (RECI) Request for Information (RFI). The response was co-signed by eight other organizations that support reducing building sector emissions in alignment with broader ambitions for climate action. We view the role of the Department of Energy (DOE) as critical in this work – the scale of investment potential and technical support provided nationally will be key in advancing building decarbonization across the U.S. The attached is the full submitted comment – the team welcomed the opportunity to provide input into the potential design of funding opportunities to ensure that full lifecycle decarbonization, health impacts, equity, and economic co-benefits are considered in potential project collaborations.
