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.
