Energy Foundation’s BRIM Report Conclusion: Support Efficiency First

From an Energy Foundation report (See more at http://omstout.com/?p=5782):

We agree that contractors should be a part of all major residential energy efficiency discussions and initiatives, which can be accomplished in large part by more frequently giving Efficiency First a seat at the table.

So, what don't we as contractors try harder to be heard? And what don't program and policy folks even ask?
