To focus on how to achieve energy efficiency retrofits in affordable multi-family rental housing, a real estate sector that has not traditionally been targeted for efficiency investments. The project will demonstrate how to harness significant sources of funding – primarily from the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, state housing finance agencies, and local utilities – that are potentially available in every state but are almost never used in tandem. NHT will partner with leading national energy efficiency organizations to promote successful retrofit financing models in five states.
