U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced awards totaling more than $76 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Fourteen companies in the building envelope and windows category will receive awards, which will support advanced energy-efficient building technology projects and the development of training programs for commercial building equipment technicians, building operators, and energy auditors.

According to the DOE announcement, the 58 projects selected will help make the nation's buildings more energy efficient and cost-effective. They will also support programs to train workers to service and operate new and existing buildings, to develop and deploy best practices resulting in fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and to establish a green workforce with technical expertise to reduce energy costs for consumers.

The building envelope and windows segment is receiving $22,807,255 total federal share. The funding will go toward 14 projects that focus on improving the energy efficiency of residential and commercial buildings through technology advances in windows and envelope components, necessary to achieve significant energy savings and performance.
