The U.S. Department of Energy’s Building America Program is an industry-driven, cost-shared research program to accelerate the development and adoption of advanced building energy technologies and practices in new and existing homes. As one of several competitively selected research teams, our Building America Partnership for Improved Residential Construction (BA-PIRC) works closely with industry and utility partners to develop innovative, real-world solutions that achieve significant energy and cost savings for homeowners, builders, and remodelers. Formerly known as the Building America Industrialized Housing Partnership (BAIHP), BA-PIRC is led by the Florida Solar Energy Center, a research institute of the University of Central Florida.
