At Berkeley Lab, we are working on a new project - Costs of Deep Energy Retrofits. 
Here's a sneak preview of an ongoing survey where we ask the question: "What are the most effective ways to increase customer demand for deep energy retrofit projects"? #1 Strong financial incentives #2 Lower project costs #3 Link to increased home market value #4 Link to healthy home #5 Easier project financing. Sure money is important, but so is a healthy home. 
This project is sponsored by the Department of Energy. We are looking for industry leaders to take part in a 20-minute survey to help us better understand market drivers, opportunities, and challenges to broaden the adoption of deep energy retrofits. 
This survey aims to find out:
  • What motivates and deters deep energy retrofits in today's market
  • Promising strategies and technologies
  • Non-cost aspects of retrofit measures that make them more or less desirable for homeowners and contractors 
We welcome responses from you and other building energy professionals. Our survey is open until June 30.
