SONY DSCThe Energy Efficiency Products Database is supported by the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation and it highlights a broad range of energy efficiency housing products and forms part of a larger national initiative to accelerate the retrofit of multifamily, low-income facilities.

This database http://www.buildingclean.org is designed to better inform those who select materials for residential retrofits about U.S. manufactured product options. It also as helps identify potential health hazards associated with certain energy-efficient products and the available alternatives. To date, close to 1,300 U.S. manufacturing sites—mostly Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s)—producing energy and water efficient products have been included in this database.

Additionally, this tool provides material supply chain information for both current and potential product manufacturers and insight regarding energy-efficient product markets, major players—including what they manufacture and within what Tier—and where products come from, be it regionally, nationally, or internationally.
