The Building America program focuses on Start Printed Page 30362conducting the systems research required to improve the efficiency of the approximately 1.6 million new homes built each year with the goal of developing cost effective net zero energy homes by 2020. These improvements are accomplished through research, development, field trials, and effective communication of key research results and system-based strategies. Building America implements this approach primarily through a group of teams. These teams typically include architects, engineers, building scientists, builders, equipment manufacturers, material suppliers, community planners, mortgage lenders, realtors, and contractor trades. This FOA, “Building America Energy Efficient Housing Partnerships,” will select multiple teams to continue the highly effective research Building America has undertaken since 1995.
