In 2017 the Home Performance Guild will be organizing our 6th Annual Home Performance Conference in support of the City of Portland’s Home Energy Score Ordinance (HESO). We are committed to the program’s successful implementation and thus will take this opportunity to develop an agenda that helps prepare the Home Performance upgrade industry, Home Energy Assessors (HEA) and the broader real estate community, for the programs full roll out on January 1st, 2018.
Plenary Track for Business Leaders & Secondary Track for HEA Training
The conferences’s plenary track will cover details that help HESO stakeholders prepare for its implementation. It will also include keynote speakers that will help frame the policy and its implementation. The plenary agenda is currently shaping up to include sessions on:
- Home Sale Listings
What homeowners and realtors can do to leverage HESO to its fullest potential
- Home Energy Scores
How can companies and individuals planning to offer Home Energy Scores do to leverage HESO to its fullest potential
- Lending, Incentives & Program Support
How can organizations offering lending products, incentives, and other support for home energy improvements, be best leveraged to make HESO meet its fullest potential
- Home Improvements
Exploring the home energy improvements that will allow companies to best leverage the HESO for their customers
In addition to the plenary track, which is typically most widely attended by company owners and managers, the conference will serve as an HEA on boarding vehicle. In a track parallel to the plenary sessions, Earth Advantage will be offering a Home Energy Score Ordinance orientation training (for everyone planning to perform scores), as well as a Home Energy Score tool training (for those that appreciate organized trainings versus independent study of the online US DOE HES testing simulation).
We are also planning for the post-conference reception to act as a HESO stakeholder networking event. For that we’ll be aiming to attract as many HESO stakeholders as possible to make it as productive for all involved as possible.
We can’t wait to see you on September 27th, when this very special Home Energy Scoring Ordinance gets to really start kicking into gear!!
