This webinar focused on specific Building America projects that have examined methods to consistently meet high levels of energy performance in existing homes, with a focus on retrofit packages that can be replicated across many homes. Presenters will answer tough questions, such as:

  • Can standard measures be applied without an audit?
  • Which packages of measures used in the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (HPwES) program meet 30% savings?
  • What can master-planned communities do to develop and implement specifications for community-scale renovations?
