Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) was formed to develop a national market for home energy rating systems and energy efficient mortgages. RESNET's standards are officially recognized by the federal government for verification of building energy performance for such programs as federal tax incentives, the Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program and the U.S. Department of Energy's Building America Program. RESNET standards are also recognized by the U.S. mortgage industry for capitalizing a building's energy performance in the mortgage loan, and certification of "White Tags" for private financial investors.
Building Performance Institute (BPI) develops standards for energy efficiency retrofit work using an open, transparent, consensus-based process built on sound building science. From these standards, they develop professional certifications for individuals, company wide credentials for BPI GoldStar Contractors, home energy rating systems and quality assurance services that help raise the bar in home performance contracting.
