November 17, 2015
Illinois Institute of Technology and Elevate Energy, a nonprofit organization that designs and implements energy efficiency programs, announced they are teaming up to study the impact of outdoor pollution and weatherization on IAQ and chronic health issues in U.S. homes.
The Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) announced that, in June 2012, it will introduce four new home energy professional certifications to the weatherization and home performance workforce. The certifications include energy auditor, retrofit installer, crew leader, and quality control inspector.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that the state of Wisconsin has surpassed its weatherization energy efficiency goal established with the agency under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
