Are you a program administrator or home performance professional struggling with a residential energy efficiency program?
Do you wish there was one place with all of the solutions to your questions?
Last month, The Department of Energy released a new resource called the Better Buildings Residential Program Solution Center. This resource is your one-stop-shop for supplementing an existing or creating a new residential energy efficiency program:
“The Solution Center is organized into a series of handbooks with step-by-step guidance for planning, operating, and evaluating a residential energy efficiency program. Each one draws on the experiences of multiple programs and contains resources such as tools, calculators, publications, videos, presentations, and program examples. Users can find information regarding business models, program designs, marketing and outreach, financing, contractor engagement, workforce development, and evaluation and data collection.”
HB&C helped create the “finance” content of this resource, while many other professionals in the energy efficiency world contributed to all the rest. Through this collaborative effort, we believe this resource is a holiday gift that will keep on giving!
