Partnership for Advancing Technologies in Housing (PATH). Energy use in building is responsible for about a third of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and rising. Major improvements can be made in the quality of housing, while reducing energy use by 50% or more and lowering costs. The PATH initiative will bring together building suppliers, assemblers, insurance companies, and state and local regulators to explore and demonstrate how innovation in construction markets can achieve environmental goals with an affordable, attractive product. Discussions are underway with jurisdictions in Colorado, Florida and California. HUD, DOE and NIST are playing major roles.
