This one hour webinar introduces participants to the National Energy Retrofit Institute (NERI). The webinar will outline how NERI teaches individuals and organizations how to succeed in the retrofit industry by providing the following:
- Standardized process (NERI Energy Improvement Model) that provides a systematic approach to designing and implementing energy improvement measures.
- New workforce roles and responsibilities that compliment current industry technical job roles and certifications.
- Use of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system (Retrofit Exchange) to automate project management, accountability and transparency.
- A platform (consortium) to support a collaborative retrofit community locally and nationally.
The webinar also provides a historical context of the residential/light commercial construction industry and its impact as a driving force behind economic recoveries in the United States dating back to the Great Depression.
Note: This webinar is a prerequisite for enrollment in all NERI Training Programs.
