THV Compozit Windows & Doors CEO Meets with the Department of Energy on Home Energy Score Program
THV CEO Charles Smith meets with DOE officials in Washington, DC to discuss the window replacement industry’s role in the DOE’s new Home Energy Score Program
Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 01, 2011
Charles Smith , CEO of THV Compozit Windows & Doors, and other members of the Window & Door Dealers Alliance went to Washington D.C. to make sure they “got a seat at the table” in the newly announced Home Energy Score Program. THV builds one of the most energy efficient windows in the industry, and therefore naturally is willing to assist the Department of Energy in any energy-efficient programs.
The Home Energy Score Program is a Department of Energy initiative that was announced in November 2010 by Vice President, Joe Biden. The Home Energy Score Program is designed to give home owners a “MPG” like rating for their home. The DOE will have a home energy assessor collect energy information during a brief home walk-through and then score that home on a scale of 1 to 10. Some of the improvements the DOE has mentioned as beneficial are energy efficient windows, insulation and Energy Star appliances to name a few.
In the past week Charles Smith, CEO of THV Compozit Windows & Doors and other members of the Window & Door Dealers Alliance met with Joan Glickman, the HES program manager for the Department of Energy, and Glenn Dickey of SRA International Inc., a firm the DOE has contracted to work on the Home Energy Score project. The purpose of the meeting was to make sure that leaders in the window and door industry would be consulted in the development of the Home Energy Score Program. The Window & Door Dealers Alliance asked questions about who would be performing the audits, what software would be used to list the recommendations, and how the Home Energy Score Program will tie in with Energy Star, and the DOE’s R-5 Program. THV Compozit Windows & Doors is a charter member of the DOE’s R-5 Program, and has a standard 5.85 R Value Window and offer a deluxe window with an R Value of 6.25. THV is considered a leader in the industry for energy efficient window innovations.
CEO, Charles Smith said “he was encouraged, and there is a very strong opportunity to strengthen the role of windows and doors within the Home Energy Score criteria.” Charles Smith also said “by the program placing an even greater return on investment on the value of windows, the net result will be greater energy efficiency for the country as a whole.”
