The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR Residential Branch (ESRB) is focused on improving the energy efficiency in residential buildings. The initiatives under ESRB are voluntary pollution prevention programs developed and managed by the EPA’s Climate Protection Partnerships Division (CPPD). The primary goal of these Programs is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants through reduced energy consumption. One of ESRB’s main responsibilities is researching, analyzing, and setting specification criteria for the ENERGY STAR qualified window, door, and skylight program.
It is important for EPA to understand how ENERGY STAR qualified products are performing in the marketplace. The EPA uses independent market analysis as one important indicator of the market penetration of ENERGY STAR qualified windows, doors and skylights. This market analysis will serve as a proxy for sales data since fenestration product manufacturers are unwilling to provide sales data directly to EPA. The market data are routinely gathered by independent organizations for industry and are used to generate market studies for the fenestration industry.
This research will provided EPA with ENERGY STAR window, door and skylight tracking data for 2012, in parallel with the AAMA and WDMA Study of the U.S. Market for Windows, Doors and Skylights, but with additional reporting and analysis to meet specific data requests from EPA.
Thus, Ducker Worldwide, LLC is the sole source of unit shipment data for windows, doors, and skylights aggregated at a climate zone (or, in the case of doors, glazing) level. No competing organization has existed over the past decade on a national level.
