Real, sustainable community change requires the initiative and engagement of community members.

RESNET plays a big role in the Home Energy ecosystem.
Part of RESNET’s role is to give a voice to the variety of organizations involved.
Some of these organizations are suppliers of materials and equipment essential to the management and control of energy and other factors in homes.
Staff member Ryan Meres joins us in this podcast to describe why RESNET formed the Suppliers Advisory Board (SAB), its activities and the benefits to organizations that join.
One of the key benefits is data from rated homes. SAB members periodically receive a supplier intelligence report: a rich insight into the trends in building practices. This data is derived from the over 2.5 million (and growing) rated homes in the US.
These insights often describe state and regional variations into the types of equipment installed, as well as home performance factors such as insulation levels and envelope leakage data and even instances of on-site power production, amongst many other factors.
In several cases, this data can be used to bolster the impact of arguments in the code adoption process.
Some of the other benefits include a booth at the annual conference, Webinars
and access to the HERS Affiliate Training course. The course provides product supplier representatives and sales staff with an understanding of how RESNET’s Home Energy Rating System (HERS) works.
