April 4, 2012: DOE Seeks Feedback on Standard Work Specifications for Multifamily Upgrades
The Guidelines for Home Energy Professionals project is a collaboration between DOE and industry to support high-quality home energy upgrade work through voluntary standard work specifications, accredited training programs, and voluntary national worker certifications. In addition to the Standard Work Specifications for Multifamily Energy Upgrades, specifications are being developed for single-family and manufactured housing.
DOE said strong industry involvement is essential to the success of the Guidelines for Home Energy Professionals project and the Standard Work Specifications for Multifamily Energy Upgrades. The industry review and comment period offers an opportunity to review the latest specifications and provide feedback through an online tool. This industry review will be followed by a public comment period.
The online commenting tool at http://nrel.pnnl.gov/forum.php is designed to allow individuals to create user accounts to administer and monitor all comments made through the standard work specifications development process. A list of frequently asked questions, a short instructional video, and a point of contact are listed on the site for user support.
