2021 Energy Retrofits for Older Vermont Buildings Course
This year, Vermont’s older buildings are being renovated at an unprecedented level due both to market pressure and to energy incentives. Guiding documents, like Vermont’s Residential and Commercial Building Energy Standards, present one-size-fits-all approaches based on modern construction that can adversely impact older buildings. We need a coherent strategy for retrofitting older materials and assemblies that recognizes their value and nature. This course will focus on residential and small commercial buildings with a panel of experienced professionals discussing best practices. Run as a forum, this course invites all interested professionals, from those with experience to those who have basic questions.
