NOVUES, a window retrofit innovations company, is pleased to announce that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to become a member of the Advanced Building Construction (ABC) Collaborative, a market transformation effort supporting innovative retrofit and new construction solutions that combine energy-efficient building decarbonization and streamlined industrialized construction.
Led by Rocky Mountain Institute in partnership with ADL Ventures, Passive House Institute US, Association for Energy Affordability and VEIC with support from the US Department of Energy (DOE), California Energy Commission, and MassCEC, the ABC Collaborative brings together a diverse network of incumbent and emergent buildings sector actors—across manufacturing, construction, real estate, development, finance, and related areas.
The buildings industry currently faces a confluence of critical challenges. Advanced Building Construction is bolstering the buildings sector by helping it meet the demand for energy efficiency, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and affordability.
The collaborative works to accelerate the uptake, scaling, and mainstream adoption of ABC while supporting—and leveraging— modernization of the US construction industry. The collaborative’s mission is to decarbonize the US building stock while improving affordability, resilience, and equity.
"Our Advanced Building Construction Initiative is reinventing the ABCs of building, unlocking higher performance levels at even lower costs while helping you build better and faster." - Jennifer M. Granholm, US Secretary of Energy
The purpose of the MOU is to leverage the Collaborative’s expertise and shared sustainability commitments to better support scaling Advanced Building Construction, drive improved building performance and building decarbonization, and achieve increased construction sector productivity, while also supporting INOVUES’ long term growth opportunities.
