CNT Energy just released a report with the results of the Green MLS/Better Buildings Roundtable convened this fall.

The event brought together approximately 25 contributors from seven Better Buildings Neighborhood Program markets, as well as about 25 of their counterparts at several key trade organizations. The group was an unprecedented mix, and was roughly balanced between four key stakeholder groups: multiple listing service (MLS) operators, Realtors, appraisers, and home performance and energy efficiency professionals.

Some of the key outcomes include a continuum for Green MLS Market progress which predicts the path markets follow as real estate and green stakeholders begin to collaborate on green home market data.

Also, there was consistent support among participants for opportunities that would encourage the future progress:

  • Create a clear path for valuing green and energy efficiency improvements.
  • Create a roadmap for the big pieces.

An article with an event overview and a link to the full report is available on CNT Energy's blog.

summary of the event and outcomes is also available.

CNT Energy is currently documenting the viability and scope of related follow-up projects, as well as encouraging participating individuals and organizations who were inspired during the event to pursue their own ideas. To stay current on developing progress, please contact me.
