Eneref Institute launched our “Solar Thermal Advantage” initiative in 2006 as an independent third-party verification of installations to encourage the adaption of solar heating and cooling in commercial and residential facilities. At that time, Eneref recognized the US solar heating and cooling industry was a group of regional companies lacking the wherewithal to organize a common, positive message. Eneref Institute jumped at this challenge, as our methodology was perfectly suited to bring the industry together as a group, and publicize the benefits of the technology to the media. In 2007, we created and self-funded our “Solar Thermal Advantage” initiative. In 2010 we went a step further, and asked the industry to help increase our annual budget for the initiative, and the positive response we received was industry-wide.
