Latest NHPC Development
The National Home Performance Council (NHPC) released a white paper which discusses what should be included in the home performance industry roadmap and provides a framework for that debate. Additionally, this paper identifies stakeholder-identified challenges and provides solutions for consideration; and, outlines a process by which an industry roadmap could be developed and implemented.

In 2007, a group of the nation’s leading energy advocates joined together to create a new organization that could support and promote home energy performance — the most effective approach to making homes more energy efficient. This new organization, the National Home Performance Council, works with federal and state government agencies, utilities, contractors, energy efficiency advocates on projects that support Home Performance with Energy Star™ initiatives and increase public awareness about the many benefits of the Home Performance approach.
Home Performance is a set of methods for making Americans’ homes more comfortable, affordable and energy efficient. These methods, which include simple, inexpensive measures like insulating, duct sealing, weatherstripping, and replacing inefficient heaters and appliances, can dramatically improve homeowners’ finances and quality of life. Scientists estimate that implementing Home Performance measures in a quarter of the nation’s homes would save the homeowners a total of $10 billion per year.
The mission of the National Home Performance Council is to encourage improved home energy performance using a whole-house approach by facilitating coordination and alignment between public and private sector stakeholders; developing standardized practices; and conducting research, analysis and education.
