A new “Lessons Learned: Peer Exchange Calls” resource summarizes top takeaways shared by Better Buildings Residential Network members, from tips to collaborating with utilities to cost-effective rebate models. The Residential Network hosts a series of Peer Exchange Calls for members to discuss similar needs and challenges, and to collectively identify effective strategies and useful resources. Following is a sample of lessons learned shared by members during various Peer Exchange Calls:

  • To make collaboration with a utility easier, show how energy efficiency can solve a financial, public relations, or customer service problem for the utility.
  • Point-based systems for determining rebates based on typical combinations of energy upgrade measures can be a cost-effective alternative to full modeling projections for multifamily properties.
  • Offer guided peer-to-peer learning opportunities for contractors, such as online discussions. These peer-sharing opportunities can make a big difference as a training component.
