About Home Energy Score
Developed by DOE and its national laboratories, the Home Energy Score™ provides homeowners, buyers, and renters easy-to-understand information about a home’s estimated energy use and cost-effective recommendations for improving energy efficiency and cutting costs. Like a miles-per-gallon rating for a car, the Home Energy Score is based on a standard assessment of energy-related assets to easily compare energy use across the housing market.
