Delivering Better, Cheaper, and Faster Retrofits through Stakeholder-Focused Research Expert Meeting

Building America hosted the "Delivering Better, Cheaper, and Faster Retrofits through Stakeholder-focused Research" expert meeting on November 16, 2010, at the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) in Des Plaines, Illinois.

This meeting focused on the partnership between the Building America program and utility programs with the increased focus on retrofit of existing homes. Many regulators and utilities are in the formative stages of developing whole house programs or augmenting existing programs to target better market penetration, which presents a real opportunity to help shape programs through technical and research support.

Presenters included representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy, national laboratories, and major utility companies. The meeting minutes (PDF 798 KB) and presentations are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs. Download Adobe Reader.
