Presentation given at the 2018 RESNET Conference

Consortium for Energy Efficiency —Residential New Construction Initiative 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - 8:30 AM-10:00 AM, Grand Salon VIII

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) is the binational organization of energy efficiency program administrators responsible for ratepayer-funded offerings across 46 US states, the District of Columbia, and seven Canadian provinces. In 2016, CEE members directed nearly $7 billion of the $8.7 billion in energy efficiency and demand response program expenditures across the US and Canada. CEE has developed a Residential New Construction Initiative that promotes highly efficient new homes through a tiered specification of performance metrics and robust quality assurance measures. The initiative has significant implications and potential for the RESNET industry, as the HERS Index is a foundation element of the specification. This session will provide an overview of the program requirements and explore its implications for HERS Raters and builders in the market.
