High-Efficiency Electrification Technology Training From New Buildings Institute (NBI)

Explore resources designed to help buildings electrify while improving energy efficiency and demand flexibility in a cost-effective and equitable manner.

Through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Buildings Energy Efficiency Frontiers & Innovation Technologies (BENEFIT) program, New Buildings Institute (NBI) has created resources to help buildings electrify while improving their energy efficiency and demand flexibility in a cost-effective and equitable manner. View their resources below to speed your transition to an electrified future:

The What and Why of Electrification (Downloadable Guides & Checklists). These resources support designers, energy auditors, and individuals in evaluating opportunities for electrifying home systems. They provide a foundational understanding for those contemplating all-electric design, helping them navigate the complexities of this transition.

All-Electric Design, New Construction Focus (Downloadable Guides). This guide can assist designers of multifamily buildings make the transition to all-electric space heating and water heating systems. It should be used as a starting point when considering all-electric design.

Electrification Spotlight: Heat Pumps (Downloadable Guides & Checklists). These resources provide key information on electrifying space heating/cooling with heat pumps. They include sizing recommendations, information on heating/cooling capacities and product availability, and a checklist for building code permitting and inspection.

Electrification Spotlight: Heat Pump Water Heaters (Downloadable Guides & Checklists). These resources provide key information on electrifying water heating systems with heat pump water heaters. The resources include sizing recommendations and a building code permitting and inspection checklist.
