How to Share Your Solutions

We welcome your contributions of content for the Better Buildings Residential Program Solution Center. We also welcome comments and suggestions for Handbooks and Tips for Success.

Submission Guidelines

Your submission must be relevant to planning, operating, or evaluating residential energy efficiency programs. No content can be self-promoting or represent a commercial advertisement for a product or service. To share new resources or comments, please email BBRPSolutionCenter@ee.doe.gov with the information requested below.

When submitting a resource (e.g. case study, program presentation, tool, publication, webcast):

  • State the full title of the resource, author, author affiliation, and publication date.
  • Include a URL link to the resource.  If that is not possible, attach the resource to the email.
  • Describe why you think the resource would be a good addition to the Solution Center.
  • (Optional) Recommend where your content will best fit within the Solution Center.

When submitting edits or suggestions to a Handbook or Tip for Success:

  • Handbook: Include the edits or comments you propose and which Handbook (e.g., Financing’s Identify Partners handbook) and tab (Description or Step-by-Step) you are referring to.
  • Tip for Success: Include the program case study, edits, or comments you propose to the Tip and why it would be a good addition to the Solution Center. If proposing a new Tip, provide qualitative or quantitative evidence supporting the value of the Tip and specific program case studies highlighting related experiences that support the Tip.

Include your name, email, phone number, and organization in the submission email. The subject line should indicate whether you are submitting new resources (e.g. New Resources for the Residential Program Solution Center) or providing edits to a Handbook or Tip for Success (e.g. Handbook/Tip Comments for the Residential Program Solution Center).
