The Residential Energy Services Network or RESNET is a not-for-profit, membership corporation that is a recognized national standards-making body for building energy efficiency rating and certification systems in the United States.
RESNET's standards are recognized by a number of industry organizations and government bodies including:
- Builders for marketing the energy performance of their homes
- Contractors to tap the emerging retrofit market
- Federal government agencies:
- IRS for tax credit qualification

RESNET administers the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index, the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance. RESNET also certifies HERS Home Energy Raters, people who perform the energy ratings for homes and assign it a relative performance score. The lower the number, the more energy efficient the home.
