HPC Joins the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO)
HPC has joined the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) as a member. RESO is a nonprofit organization that develops, promotes and maintains, through an open process, voluntary electronic commerce standards for the real estate industry. Membership will enable HPC to participate in the standards development process. The RESO data dictionary contains a number of energy efficiency related fields that a growing number of multiple listing services (MLS) are choosing to include in their systems. HPC will bring its expertise in home energy efficiency to the RESO standards development process to help shape how energy efficiency is represented in the real estate market. Membership will also enable HPC to map HPXML, the open data standard for the residential energy efficiency industry, to RESO to support the auto-population of energy efficiency data into MLS systems nationwide.
