2007 RESNET Building Performance Conference

Conference Theme

"Taking It To The Next Level"

February 17 - 21, 2007
Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina
San Diego, CA

The building performance industry, as well as the nation as a whole, is confronted with an incredible sea of change. Energy is back in the news. 2006 has witnessed such dramatic events as spiking energy prices, the new federal tax credit for energy efficient homes, growing public awareness of global climate change and changes to ENERGY STAR and the energy rating standards.

California is a great reflection of this movement. The state energy code requires performance testing by certified raters on all new homes. State law requires performance testing by an energy rating at the change out of an air conditioning system. In addition the state is developing an ambitious climate change action plan that will include the capping and trading of harmful carbon emissions. It is indeed appropriate that this year=s conference is being held in the Golden State.

2007 offers building energy performance a number of new opportunities such as:

  • Effective tapping into the existing homes market
  • New innovative non-mortgage financing of energy improvements
  • Pollution savings verification
  • The development of a market for White Tags
  • International cooperation

The theme of the 2007 RESNET Conference is "Taking It To The Next Level". The 2007 RESNET Conference will review the changes in the rating industry, discuss their implications, and explore how to position a rating business to profit from the new opportunities.

The RESNET Conference is the premier national forum on home energy ratings, residential energy efficiency financing, and building performance business development. Make plans now for three days of networking, learning, sharing and enjoying beautiful San Diego.

RESNET is seeking suggestions for sessions and presenters that should be featured at the 2007 RESNET Conference. Please e-mail your suggestions to
