Through Better Buildings, DOE works with organizations to make buildings and plants more energy-efficient. These same organizations can pursue further sustainability and emissions reduction goals by incorporating renewable energy such as solar and wind energy. On-site renewable energy, when paired with energy storage and configured appropriately, can also increase a site’s resilience during a grid outage. The Better Buildings team has collected renewables resources that help navigate alternative energy solutions and future energy options and address common challenges.
