About Peer Exchange Calls

All are invited to take part in topical Peer Exchange Calls that are more discussion than webinar and serve as a forum to ask questions and bounce ideas off peers. Calls take place most Thursdays at 1 p.m. Eastern.

Reporting and Recognition

Better Buildings Residential Network members commit to reporting the number of upgrades their organization completes, as well as other, related benefits, on an annual basis. This is the only requirement of membership in the Better Buildings Residential Network.

We ask that you review the Reporting and Recognition Template, which is due annually in the spring, to familiarize yourself with this process.

Once a member organization submits their accomplishments, the Residential Network is able to recognize them through a variety of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) publications, reports, websites, and social media.

Voluntary Initiatives

Residential Network Voluntary Initiatives provide a forum for members to join together to address a common need or opportunity for energy efficiency programs and create targeted toolkits. Past toolkit topics include:

  • Community-Based Social Marketing
  • Training
  • Social Media
  • Designing Incentives
  • Partnerships

Members are invited to participate in the creation of these toolkits by sharing resources and providing feedback. Email the Residential Network to learn how your organization can get involved in the creation of toolkits on future topics.
