Water is the new frontier for RESNET and HERS® Raters. In many parts of the nation water is fast becoming a scarce commodity. There is clearly a need for a system to rate a home’s efficiency in water use. This will allow homebuyers to know how efficiently water is being used in the homes they are considering to buy. It will also provide an opportunity for homebuilders to monetize the efficiency of their homes. RESNET is beginning the process of developing a rating system for the water efficiency of residential buildings. A special feature of the 2015 RESNET Building Performance Conference is a track on A New Frontier and Opportunity in Water Efficiency The 2015 RESNET Building Performance Conference offers a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about this critical new development.
