Burgess Selected As Presenter at 2017 RESNET Conference

Chris Urbanus, Director of Burgess Energy Services, was nominated and selected to be a presenter at the 2017 RESNET conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, February 27th – March 1st. His breakout session, “The Great HERS Rater Debate”, is a unique debate style format which includes three other industry professionals, one of which is the National Director of the U.S. DOE’s Building America Program. The session is scheduled for Wednesday, March 1st at 8:30am.

During the session, the participants will discuss the pros and cons of different energy-focused construction techniques and solutions to meet today’s marketplace needs. From cost-effective solutions for achieving code compliance to managing increasing homebuyer demands, the Great Debate will provide real, on-the-job insights and data to support their respective positions.

We asked Chris what he is looking forward to the most, and he said “I’m excited to better help educate industry professionals about the best practices we’ve discovered throughout our years in the energy rating business. It is also a great opportunity to be part of a group of other industry experts where we can exchange ideas and explore new and innovative ways to advance the rating industry.”

To keep things lively, moderators will be fielding real-time questions from the audience via text and Twitter using #GreatDebate. The session is sure to be an exciting and healthy debate which should help shape energy strategies for industry professionals in the future.
