Training unemployed construction and building workers in the skills of energy retrofit.  This is a magnificent use of public investment!

Home Energy Retrofit Exchange
The Retrofit Exchange was designed to address the critical worker shortage. This Retrofit Marketplace Exchange networks the entire industry together, automates many of the missing business skills, and improves the rate of success for small efficiency retrofit businesses.  It is designed to engage both small businesses and larger contractors in entering the retrofit market to build an industry at scale.
A public/private training consortium being developed in collaboration with the University of Central Missouri in Kansas City, Missouri provides a case study to support the development of high-level national standards for training a national home retrofit workforce
