Local Energy Efficiency Partnerships (LEEP)

LEEP accelerates energy efficient construction by enabling builders to reduce their time and risk finding and trying innovations that can help them build higher performance homes better, faster and more affordably.

LEEP is delivered on a regional basis with the intent to establish an ongoing critical mass of builders that are capable of pulling through the best innovations suited to their region which can, in turn, pull through a responsive supply chain. The results include energy savings for home owners, competitive advantage for participating builders and manufacturers, and builder driven enhancement to local building practice.

How LEEP Works

To reduce builder time and risk in finding and trying innovations for building higher performance homes better, faster and more affordably.

Upcoming LEEP events

Builders, mechanical contractors, designers, building officials and construction students are invited.

LEEP field trials

Builders participating at LEEP Technology Forums are invited to build energy efficient homes using some of the technologies they learned about.

LEEP technology guides

Find guides and publication to help LEEP builders move forward to use new technologies pulled through the LEEP process.

Manufacturer participation

Manufacturers respond to challenges set by builder groups.

Industry feedback

Feedback from builders, partners and municipalities.
