Welcome to
The CHERP Network:

Driving Energy Efficiency
and Economic Recovery


We are facing an energy crisis. Relying on fossil fuels to power our economy is raising the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is driving climate change and global warming. To achieve a sustainable society we have to develop renewable energy sources and reduce our use of fossil fuels. The most important resource we have to achieve those goals is energy efficiency. Most houses and other buildings are much less energy efficient than we think, wasting on average 50-60% of the energy they consume.

At CHERP, we believe that education - for homeowners, communities, and contractors alike - is key to driving change.
