American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is an international organization of 50,000 members, organized for the purpose of advancing heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technologies through research, standards writing, continuing education and publications.
Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) is an organization committed to helping their firm or clients increase energy efficiency, utilize innovative energy service options, enhance environmental management programs, upgrade facility operations and improve equipment performance. The AEE web site includes information on certification, courses, conferences, publications and local chapters.
Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) - Online Code Environment & Advocacy Network (OCEAN) assists states in the development and implementation of statewide building energy codes.
Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) is a non-profit, public benefit corporation that uses the power of mass markets to advance super energy-efficient technologies that benefit consumers and the environment. They do this by encouraging utilities and other partners across the country to pool their market influence by voluntarily adopting common programs and efficiency specifications.
Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) is a comprehensive source of information on state, local, utility and federal incentives and policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. Established in 1995 and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, DSIRE is an ongoing project of the N.C. Solar Center and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council.
Energy Efficient Building Association (EEBA) is an International non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting the development of energy efficient and environmentally responsible buildings and communities worldwide.
Energy Systems Laboratories (ESL) is a division of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station and a member of the Texas A&M University System. The Lab focuses on energy-related research, energy efficiency, and emissions reduction, and has a total annual income for external research and testing exceeding $10 million.
International Code Council (ICC) provides technical information on building codes, building products and building technology. See the ICC Certification and Licensing for a wide array of examinations for professional code enforcement and construction.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) offers an interactive tool for calculating residential energy use, on-line reports, success stories, newsletters, and a directory of internet energy efficiency resources.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) delivers key support to DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) programs through sustainable electricity, sustainable manufacturing, and sustainable mobility.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) The Building Energy Systems & Technologies group is part of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Energy Environment Directorate. Their signature capabilities include sustainable design and development, building systems and energy technology analysis, and carbon management.
Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) is a national network of mortgage companies, real estate brokerages, builders, appraisers, utilities, and housing and energy professionals whose mission is to improve the energy efficiency of the nation's housing and to qualify more families for home ownership by expanding the national availability of mortgage financing options and home energy ratings.
Texas Home Energy Raters Organization (HERO) is a not-for-profit professional organization that promotes the benefits of energy conservation initiatives and monetary incentives to homeowners, homebuilders and businesses.
