WSU Soliciting Input on Round Robins for New and Existing Homes
The results of a WSU study looking at market-based residential energy audits were published in the July/August 2013 issue of Home Energy.
In 2010, Washington State University (WSU) conducted a survey to look at market-based residential energy audits as part of a grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The results of that survey were published in the July/August 2013 issue of Home Energy magazine in an article titled “Past, Present, Future: Directions in Single-Family Energy Auditing and Retrofits.” The report on which the article is based provides a wealth of information related to existing home energy efficiency retrofits and can be downloaded here.  
We would like to get your feedback as part of a needs assessment regarding the use of round robins as a potential QA tool to support education and training efforts of home performance industry organizations such as RESNET, ACCA, and BPI. WSU intends to develop a generic guideline—“How to implement a round robin”—and would like to get your opinion on the usefulness, scope, and specific round robin organizations and standard/manual/guideline areas to prioritize. We want to know:
  • If we develop a generic round robin “how to” guideline will it be utilized by stakeholders?
  • Who may utilize the guideline and for what application and purposes?
  • Are you interested in supporting WSU round robin efforts? If so, let us know!
