The visiting Home Energy Detective company was very interesting! I understand how energy auditors work in residential sector, which testing equipment they use and what marketing strategy they choose.

I personally felt the very good attitude and high interest due to discussing technical details of doing energy audit and different aspects of energy technologies and new energy savings materials. 

It would be good to assign more time for such meetings for the next program.  

The visit Troy's home help me understand better how people live in US and it was great pleasure to meet them.   

In general I am happy to take part in SABIT program were I meet many interesting people and companies. I hope to keep in touch with them and set up a JV business with some companies.


Best regars,

Alexandr Matrohin
