The U.S. Department of Energy's Building America program is hosting its second annual Residential Energy Efficiency Technical Update Meeting, scheduled for August 9-11 in Denver.

The Colorado meeting is targeted to researchers, architects, contractors, manufacturers, builders, utilities, legislators, lenders, realtors, auditors, raters, installation technicians, and anyone else interested in improving energy efficiency in both new and existing residential buildings. Last year, more than 200 highly-qualified building industry professionals came together to share the most current innovative projects in the residential buildings sector, DOE states.

The meeting, which will also include tours of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, will be held at the Denver Renaissance Hotel. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited, DOE notes.  Registration information is available from the Building America portion of the DOE website.
