Bringing Home Energy Information to Real Estate: A Toolkit
A product of the Better Buildings Home Energy Information Accelerator, this document helps readers interested in improving access to home energy information navigate the many resources, lessons learned, and best practices developed through the Accelerator. Although written for an audience of energy program administrators and efficiency leaders, resources referenced in this document can be used by REALTORS®, appraisers, lenders, and homeowners directly. By centralizing these resources in one place, we hope to continue to accelerate these processes for easier implementation nationwide. The Accelerator identified three major project areas to accelerating the path of home energy information toward consumers in the real estate market:
- Define and consolidate data,
- Integrate data with real estate, and
- Grow the inventory of data.
