Residential heating and cooling have long been a target of energy efficiency projects and efficiency program portfolios. Exciting new opportunities expand on long-standing envelope and HVAC system upgrades and further reduce the energy required for space conditioning in homes. These include new and innovative technologies, but also new information tools and program design and implementation approaches to better align energy efficiency and the interests of both electric and gas utilities.

In this webinar, ACEEE will summarize findings of two new briefs in its Emerging Opportunities in Buildings Series covering 1) Residential Window Attachments and 2) Dual-Fuel Programs. Attendees will also hear from some of the experts that contributed their knowledge to the briefs. Please join us to learn more about these emerging opportunities and how the building industry, efficiency programs, and policymakers can leverage their benefits.

Chris Perry, ACEEE, will introduce the Emerging Opportunities Series and the two new briefs before introducing the speakers.

Lara Bonn, Efficiency Vermont, will present the new rating, certification, and labeling program for window attachments developed by the Attachments Energy Rating Council and the opportunities it presents for consumers, retailers, and program administrators. Lara will discuss Efficiency Vermont’s experience incorporating window attachments in its program portfolio.

Bruce Mast, Ardenna Energy, will present opportunities for program administrators to provide dual-fuel residential programs offering measures that save both electricity and natural gas. He will discuss how utilities can partner to provide a collaborative program, and share insights about best practices from his experience as a program implementer.
