Key organizations have formed the Commercial Buildings Initiative (CBI) to examine how to transform commercial building energy use.

The CBI is an alliance of industrial, academic, and governmental representatives who develop ways to deliver Zero Net Energy Commercial Buildings in a cost-effective and widespread manner. The plan includes the planning, coordination, and implementation of activities designed to transform energy performance in commercial buildings.

Sponsors include ASHRAE, AIA, U.S. Green Building Council, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Dept. of Energy, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Alliance to Save Energy.
