The residential sector is one of the major sources of energy use. Introducing innovative energy efficiency technologies in new and existing homes as well as multifamily buildings will contribute to reduce consumers’ energy bills, help address climate change, benefit the environment, and enhance the nation’s energy security.
Implementing energy efficiency practices, performing home energy audits, improving insulation, replacing water heaters and appliances are the most common solutions, but ... how can consumers prioritize these alternatives?
In this seminar, attendees will learn about
Home energy ratings
How ratings can drive efficiency by giving consumers actionable recommendations and a way to recoup their investments.
Multifamily energy efficiency challenges and opportunities.
How to remove barriers to energy efficiency in the multifamily sector.
