BetterBuiltNW (Jon Belmont, Emily Kemper, and Dan Wildenhaus) will present on the topic of: What We Do With Data in the Dark: Using Data to Transform the Market for High-Performance Homes. Read on for the full abstract, and we hope to see you there!

What We Do With Data in the Dark: Using Data to Transform the Market for High-Performance Homes.

NEEA's BetterBuiltNW residential new construction program in the Pacific Northwest has been collecting data since its inception in 2004 and in this session, representatives from the program will discuss how the program data collected is used in various ways to support regional goals. From one angle, the program supports best practices and trains stakeholders across the region on how best to achieve energy savings, and we'll discuss how that improves the contributions from builders, verifiers, and trades.

From another angle, the program works with Home Certification Providers and uses heat maps to determine how many stakeholders are engaged and where there are opportunities. The program's software platform provider will discuss integration with industry data collectors, such as MLS. Finally, NEEA will explain how each facet of the program influences planning region-wide, from the terms of investment in energy efficiency programs, market transformation efforts, and NW Council Power Planning.
