EDF Teams Up With Honest Buildings To Accelerate The Development Of High Performance Buildings


We announced today that EDF is working with HonestBuildings.com (Honest Buildings) to accelerate the number of energy upgrades, renovations and sustainable building projects throughout the U.S.  Honest Buildings is a rapidly growing social networking website that offers energy efficiency vendors and service providers an ideal platform to showcase their work, connect with clients and generate new business.  It also helps people find and share information about buildings, their owners, their occupants and the people who service them.

Collectively, we need to do more to tell the story behind what’s driving improvements in the built environment, which consumes 70% of electricity in the U.S. and emits more than a third of greenhouse gases.  By providing transparent information about buildings and their performance, we believe Honest Buildings is a powerful platform to do just that.

As part of EDF’s Energy Innovation Series, every week we will select one project from Honest Buildings to feature on edf.org/energyinnovation and promote through the series’ social media channels.  By showcasing the most innovative and effective energy efficiency projects, EDF and Honest Buildings are working together to raise awareness and accelerate market adoption of smarter and more energy efficient buildings.
