    Dear BPKC,

    I would like to pass on this opportunity to you. I have been working with the Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technology Research and Integration Center (BTRIC) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory on The Building Envelope Campaign (BEC). This program is designed to create more energy-efficient buildings! This will be achieved by targeting the building envelope's thermal performance, determining available energy savings, and providing technical support.

    The Campaign will recognize successful participants on the website and at industry events.

    You can get involved as:


    Participants (building owners/managers, architects, general contractors, consultants, etc.) will be given access to campaign resources-including the building assessment tool-and technical expertise in evaluating envelope options. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to:

    • Be publicly recognized for your participation
    • Stay informed of envelope technologies and resources produced through the campaign
    • Collaborate with the BEC in the development of case studies

    Participants are also eligible to receive annual awards presented at large industry events, including:

    • Novel 20 or 40 (for new construction)
    • Retro 30 or 50 (for retrofit projects)


    Supporters (manufacturers, researchers, utilities, industry organizations, etc.) are invested in the campaign even though they may not be able to submit buildings for recognition. As a supporter, you will be able to:

    • Access technical expertise regarding envelope technologies
    • Partner with the BEC technical team to promote the campaign
    • Receive public recognition for your support


    • New construction or retrofit
    • Commercial or multi-family residential
    • Completed since January 2019
    • Located in the U.SA

    here is the link to the campaign
