DOE Announces Partnerships to Promote Energy Efficiency Mentions Value of Retrofitting Windows

According to a report on the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Website, the organization will initiate 15 research and deployment partnerships aimed at improving residential energy efficiency across America.

The report says these partnerships will receive a total of up to $30 million for the initial eighteen months of their scheduled projects to deliver innovative energy efficiency strategies to the residential market. The partnerships are also intended to support ongoing retrofit initiatives.

The DOE says existing techniques and technologies in energy efficiency retrofitting, including those associated with windows and doors, can reduce energy use by up to 40 percent per home and cut energy bills by $40 billion annually.
