Technology Strategies by Industry

The Department of Energy developed the Low Carbon Technology Strategies Toolkit to support building owners in their journey to reduce carbon emissions in their existing buildings. Currently available for 10 building types, this includes a range of strategies from quick-fixes to deep retrofit improvements to reach the highest level of building performance.
