EERE Webinar August 11: National Residential Retrofit Guidelines
August 09, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is conducting a webinar describing efforts underway to develop a suite of national guidelines for the work and workforce involved in residential energy efficiency retrofits.
Webinar attendees will learn how these proposed guidelines will improve the quality of weatherization services and other residential retrofit work; assist training providers in developing industry-recognized course content and curricula; increase mobility and improve the careers of weatherization and residential energy efficiency retrofit workers; and build confidence among consumers and the energy efficiency finance community.
The webinar presentation is titled "National Residential Retrofit Guidelines: Updates & Opportunities for Weatherization and Residential Retrofit Stakeholders," and will take place on Wednesday, August 11, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The speaker will be Benjamin Goldstein, project lead for the National Residential Retrofit Guidelines at EERE.
