NFRC Takes Leading Role on Green Building Education, Outreach

Posted By Adriana Vargas, National Fenestration Rating Council, Thursday, September 12, 2019

Windows, doors and skylights are an essential part of energy efficiency and green building plans, and the demand for energy-efficient commercial and residential buildings is growing by leaps and bounds. Policymakers are looking to reduce emissions related to energy use, and it makes economic sense for building owners—as well as tenants—who can benefit from lower electric bills with energy-efficient doors and windows.

Recognizing the need for the latest information on the green building movement, NFRC has launched the Leaders Network to give engineers, architects, code officials and others involved in the sustainable building supply chain access to the best experts, data and science available. The first meeting takes place September 23 in Charlotte.

A recent study found the $28 billion window and door market is projected to grow at an annual rate of 4 percent through 2023. To harness this potential, stakeholders will need to adapt to energy-efficiency standards that contribute to “whole-building design.” This means all of the parts of the building are designed and built to work together as a complete system, instead of just as a collection of individual parts.

With 30 years of experience and fair, accurate and credible ratings at its fingertips, NFRC is uniquely poised to help homeowners and office building owners reduce their carbon footprint. To leverage those resources, the NFRC Leaders Network kick-off event will include speakers from Habitat for Humanity, Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance and Fitwel, as well as a demonstration of a drone using technology affixed to it to rate the performance of windows.

Along with a chance to learn about the latest green building trends and network with leading experts, attendees will be eligible for AIA and LEED credits. You don’t want to miss the NFRC Leaders Network and Green Track Event to ensure you and your business capitalize on the green building movement that’s rapidly becoming the norm.
