Listen Now! RESTalk EP14: “Evolving Standards For Multifamily Ratings”

Dec 3, 2018
What’s the most effective way to conduct an energy rating on a multifamily building?
We discuss with Gayathri Vijayakumar, Chair of RESNET®
Standards Development Committee (SDC) 300, the efforts of her and a dedicated group of individuals that have moved multifamily building energy ratings from guidelines to becoming a part of the existing HERS® Standards 301 and 380. RESNET SDC 300 is responsible for overseeing RESNET’s technical standards and amending the standards.
In addition, you will gain a clearer picture of how RESNET Standards are made and most importantly, updated regularly through research and public comment. You will also learn about what constitutes a multifamily building and how some of the assessments and tests are performed.
Learn more about the standards at RESNET’s website and keep up to date with pending standards amendments at Current RESNET Pending Standard Amendments.
We also learn of Gayathri’s passion for her work, her love of solar, and what has driven her career to this point at Steven Winter Associates.
Gayathri offers her email address for you to get in touch, gvijayakumar@swinter.com, and you may also run into her at the 2019 RESNET Conference where she will be presenting a session on the new standard changes.
Industry Professionals should consider attending the annual conference which will be held in New Orleans, LA Feb 25-27, 2019 more info at conference.resnet.us.
