The Home Performance Coalition (HPC) was formed in 2014 as a merger between Affordable Comfort, Inc. and the National Home Performance Council (NHPC). Since that time, HPC has formed memorandums of understanding with three key organizations in the building performance industry, creating an organization with broad reach and influence. These organizations include: Home Energy Magazine, Efficiency First, and the Building Performance Institute (BPI).
HPC collaborates with like-minded organizations to ensure all homes are healthy, comfortable, and energy-efficient through projects, policy, publication, online communities, and regional and national events. HPC has over 30 years of experience providing conferences, trainings, and trade shows in partnership with the nation’s leading experts in home performance and weatherization. Researching, writing and presenting on several policy reports each year, HPC advances access to healthy homes. As the umbrella organization of Home Energy Magazine and Home Energy Pros Forum, HPC is able to catalog the great discussions of the past and become the gathering place for information exchanges of tomorrow and beyond.
HPC has several funders, more than 25 sponsors, nearly 100 exhibitors, more than 3,000 attendees and 6,000 forum members that annually support the industry through HPC’s activities. These partnerships offer great potential to address key technical and policy issues preventing the development of a vibrant home performance industry capable of delivering healthier and more energy efficient homes. These partnerships build on the strengths of each of the participating organizations.
From policy to conferences to best practices and career growth, HPC, and our partners, support home performance professionals.
