Summit / Conference History

A small contingent of building professionals representing the United States, Canada, and Sweden, gathered in Pine Island, Minnesota in early 1982 to develop criteria for the construction of buildings that were more energy efficient. These forward-thinking pioneers created the Energy Efficient Building Association.

Over the years, the organization grew as the impact the building industry had on the environment was recognized. An unmatched understanding of building science was embraced. EEBA members committed to be good stewards of the resources used in the construction of residential and light commercial buildings.
