The RESNET Board of Directors adopted as a priority of the organization to engage the retrofit industry and facilitating a relationship between raters and contractors.

On August 12, 2010 RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)  with Insulation Contractors Association of America (ICAA) Michael Kwart.  The goal of the agreement was that the two organizations would work together to tap the existing homes retrofit market.

The draft MOU provides for:

  • ICAA representation on the RESNET EnergySmart Homes Guidelines Task Force
  • ICAA will urge its members to become designated as RESNET EnergySmart Contractors
  • ICAA presence at the 2011 RESNET Building Performance Conference
  • RESNET presence at the 2010 ICAA Conference and Trade Show
  • Collaboration on developing a process for the linking of contractors and energy raters for comprehensive retrofits

RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden commented on the new agreement, “It is exciting to be able to reach out and develop new partnerships with contractors to position RESNET to tap the existing homes market.  With the current uncertainties in Washington, it is timely to develop new private sector alliances.”
