Free Green Home Webinar: New Carbon Index & Other Exciting Growth in the Home Energy Rating Industry, July 26
Event Description

Exciting growth has been happening in the home energy rating industry over the past several years. Resnet has seen a 129 percent increase in Hers Ratings submitted to its National Buildings Registry since 2013, with year-over-year increases for the past decade. In 2022, there were nearly 338,000 HERS Ratings completed. Last year RESNET published the third edition of its ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 301, which now includes a new Carbon Rating Index. This webinar will include a brief overview of Standard 301, the new Carbon Rating Index, some of last year’s data trends in HERS Rated homes and the 45L tax credits for ENERGY STAR and Zero Energy Ready Homes.

Bonus: They will discuss how this rating system is used to achieve LEED for Homes certification and other green building programs.

Lessons Learned:

  • Describe the importance of rating the CO2e emissions of homes and tying that into LEED BD+C V4 Homes Prerequisite EA minimum energy performance.
  • Explain how CO2 emissions are calculated in Standard 301.
  • Understand the trends in HERS Rated home data across the U.S and how that helps with LEED BD+C V4 Homes Prerequisite EA minimum energy performance.
  • Describe how new homes can qualify for the 45L tax credit, which can improve LEED points in LEED BD+C V4 Homes Credit EA Annual Energy Use.
