The Residential Building Integration program at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) initiated the efforts described in this website and the Guidelines for Building Science Education (GBSE). This effort has focused on the fundamental building science knowledge-base for a wide range of building industry jobs. Additionally DOE’s commercial building integration program hosts a full suite of impactful initiatives including the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines (BBWG), which provide voluntary national guidelines from which stakeholders can develop high-quality and nationally recognized training and certification programs.

Together, these initiatives have established this website for professors and trainers, to provide easy access to peer reviewed classroom content related to building science.
