Our Mission

The National Center improves the efficiency, productivity and security of the U.S. building stock by developing and disseminating synergistic and complementary solutions to energy management, indoor environmental quality and security concerns in new and existing buildings. This is done by supporting research, participating in standard setting, advancing technical training and professional education and serving as a repository of information on economic, technical and public policy issues. The National Center acts a resource to Federal agencies, state and local governments, building owners, the HVAC industry and consumers.

Since 1999, the National Energy Management Institute (NEMI), with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has brought together government officials, academic and industry experts to address the need for advancing building technologies to enhance energy efficiency, public health, productivity and security in US buildings. The culmination of that effort is the founding of the National Center for Energy Management and Building Technologies (NCEMBT).
