In 2011, Research Into Action launched a four-year evaluation for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings Program. The program invests American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds to: 1) initiate projects that achieve energy savings in sectors where this has proved difficult, 2) demonstrate a sustainable business model for providing cost-effective energy upgrades for a large percentage of the residential, commercial, and/or public buildings in a specific community, and 3) identify and spread the most effective approaches supporting the development of a robust retrofit industry in the US. More than 40 grantees provide diverse programs throughout the U.S. Our team will develop and employ a quasi-experimental design to assess how well the overall Better Buildings program has achieved its objectives. Evaluation activities will include process and market effects assessments and energy impact evaluations, including M&V and billing analysis. We seek to fully understand the various program activities, explain the theory and logic of how they address the Better Buildings objectives, and identify which programs and program elements were most successful and which can be successfully replicated.
