Energy-Performance-Based Acquisition Training

Energy-performance-based acquisition incorporates energy performance goals, language, and incentives into the planning, design, construction, and operation of a building. DOE has developed an energy-performance-based acquisition how-to guide, as well as case studies, fact sheets, and other resources to support commercial building owners, operators, and design-build teams in effectively implementing this approach.

Key steps in the energy-performance-based acquisition process are:

More information can be found by viewing the collection of goal-based acquisition case studies.

Introductory training modules that tie these resources together are under development in collaboration with the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). Links to these training modules will be posted here when they are available in winter 2013.
