Conference builds momentum for energy-efficient housing
More than 200 building industry professionals and Iowa electric co-op staff attended the 2020 Momentum is Building conference, held Feb. 6-7 in West Des Moines.
Sponsored by the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Iowa, the annual conference promotes residential energy efficiency building concepts and provides valuable CEU training for electricians, plumbers and HVAC professionals. This year, 20 vendors and exhibitors attended the conference to share new trends and products related to residential energy efficiency. The conference also serves to educate the next generation of professionals as several construction students from Indian Hills Community College and Iowa Central Community College attended.
Sandra Adomatis of Adomatis Appraisal Services (pictured) stressed the importance of properly marketing energy efficient homes in her general session keynote on Thursday morning. "Promoting energy efficiency housing is a group effort that requires support from utilities, builders, lenders, appraisers and realtors," she noted.
The annual conference is managed and organized by Iowa's generation and transmission cooperatives.
