Areas of Focus
2022 Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)
BPA’s latest achievement is helping to secure billions of dollars in rebates and incentives for home energy efficiency and electrification, plus hundreds of millions of dollars to train workers for the jobs that funding will create, by helping shape the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
BPA fights to keep the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) authorized and fully funded by working closely with House and Senate appropriators to ensure that crucial home performance agencies, programs, and initiatives are provided with the funds they need to advance home performance across the country.
The future of our industry depends on our people. BPA is leading the charge in workforce development and investing in a framework for training and education that will equip the home and building performance industry with a high-quality, skilled workforce.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
BPA believes that clean, efficient energy should be affordable and accessible to all. BPA’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) task force aligns the Association with DEI best practices and ensures that we are not merely being transactional about DEI, but transformative instead.
Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
The BIL provides funding for several highly effective state and local programs that will spur projects that increase access to energy efficiency to save money for Americans, help achieve nationwide clean energy goals, and accelerate job growth.
The Building Performance Association is committed to creating a thriving industry for those we represent. Education, networking, and advocacy are just a few of the things we offer to keep our workforce engaged.”
