RESNET International Initiatives Task Force

RESNET is actively involved in a number of international efforts to coordinate the rating of buildings' energy performance. We invite you to serve on a new RESNET International Initiatives Task Force.

RESNET Board President Philip Fairey has been appointed by ANSI to be the U.S. representative on the International Standards Organization (ISO) Standard 163 Working Group that will be developing the international standard on the rating of building energy performance.

RESNET's Executive Director, Steve Baden, was appointed by the International Energy Agency to serve on the Organization for Economic Development's (OECD) Global Sustainable Buildings Network work group.

In addition, Mr. Fairey and I have been in an active dialogue with the European Community's Concerted Action Group that is involved in developing standards for the European Union's Energy Performance in Buildings Directive.

As U.S. representatives on these efforts, RESNET would like to develop American consensus positions on the issues that develop in these efforts.

RESNET has created an International Initiatives Task Force. The role of the RESNET International Initiatives Task Force will be to review the issues that emerge from the international collaborative and provide input to RESNET. This will assist RESNET in developing positions for the international group's consideration. Having a large and transparent process as possible will add credibility to RESNET's recommendations.
