Efficient New Homes in Young Markets in Changing Times

Presenter: Kathleen Greely, PSD Consulting

Room: San Marcos

Energy-efficient new homes programs face many challenges in young, undeveloped markets during the current new construction downturn. And now ENERGY STAR for Homes is changing, adding new hurdles for builders and raters to surmount. By drawing on the experience gained through a Mid-Atlantic electric utility new homes program, this session will focus on performance-based incentive design that creates a low barrier to entry, yet encourages builders to reach deeper levels of efficiency. By incenting but not requiring ENERGY STAR, programs can continue to collect energy savings as builders work through the ES 3.0 transition, while creating an ENERGY STAR-friendly economic environment. In addition, this session will look at problems unique to a young marketplace, including:

· Creating raters and interested builders simultaneously (not one before the other)

· Helping raters learn not just technical skills but also sales techniques
