About Us - Home Energy Magazine Our Mission
Home Energy Magazine Cover - Our Mission

In 1984, Alan and other colleagues based at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab started Energy Auditor and Retrofitter magazine, which was quickly given the more memorable title: Home Energy. At that time, Home Energy was the only periodical devoted to advancing energy efficiency and conservation in existing homes. In 2018, Home Energy, along with Efficiency First, joined with the Home Performance Coalition and its affiliate the Building Performance Association. The Association shares the goals of Home Energy, and adds support, education, advocacy at the state and national level, standards development, and networking to that mission, on behalf of the entire building performance community.

As a cutting-edge publication, Home Energy continually evolves in tandem with changes in building science. As we advance into the future under the auspices of the Building Performance Association, the reach of home performance is expanding, and so is that of Home Energy.

Home Energy Magazine is published in four quarterly issues per year by the Building Performance Association's affiliate, Home Performance Coalition, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

What is a home performance contractor

What if it is drafty, moldy, expensive to heat and cool, or just uncomfortable too much of the time? You need to find a home performance contractor. A home performance contractor has undergone specialized training so that he or she can diagnose a home's problems and find ways to fix them.
