Research Will Address Making New Markets and the Demand Creation Role of the Distributor
July 12, 2013
The Heating, Air-conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) Education & Research Foundation has announced the kickoff of a new research project to study and define distributors’ role in the demand creation process.
In this podcast, Jon Melchi, HARDI's director of government affairs, updates us on regional standards, discusses HARDI’s recent visit to Washington, D.C., and touches on a few other issues affecting distributors.
While a pending settlement agreement led many industry members to believe an end to the regional energy-efficiency standards saga was near, continued legal maneuvering and a stressed judicial system has many convinced that a resolution may in fact be months away.
