Please provide a copy of the independent testing document.
Has the material been reviewed by government agencies, trade associations, national laboratories, or other organizations? If so, please provide this information.
Describe potential energy conservation (and/or health and safety) improvements to the Weatherization Program produced by the submission (e.g. energy and/or cost savings, emissions reductions, etc.).
Describe the potential impact of the submission on existing measures/protocols.
Describe any non-energy benefits that should be considered.
Provide any information on the demonstrated/ projected cost-effectiveness of the submission (energy, time, money valuation).
Provide projected cost to Weatherization agency associated with integrating submission into normal practices (including initial investment in capital equipment, materials cost, maintenance, etc.).
Do you know whether the energy audit or reporting forms will need to be amended to account for this new technology/technique?
