December 2011, Lawrence Berkeley Labs report for the EPA.  Very significant document that establishes how to make it desirable and feasible for financially stressed middle-income Americans to improve their energy efficiency through innovative government incentives.  Worth a read for any serious professional and has lots of useful data to back our arguments.http://eetd.lbl.gov/EAP/EMP/reports/lbnl-5244e.pdfSee More

Energy auditor/analyst contracts

We are seeing increased requirements for HERS Whole House Analysis in California.  Frequently, the analyses are required as part of a funding programs. Although the contract is between the homeowner and the HERS analyst, the motivation may be to comply with a requirement of a funding or enforcement entity.  How should the agreement reflect this?  Should specific items to be considered be included? Do HERS, BPI and BIG have any standardized agreements or contracts?  Do you, as an auditor/analyst…See More
