A webinar presenting an overview of key utility regulatory processes for advancing energy efficiency in affordable multifamily housing is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17, at 1:00 pm ET.
Improving the energy efficiency of affordable units promises benefits in health, comfort, and reduced cost for low income tenants. The state regulatory process that often controls the creation, distribution, and utilization of financial resources is new subject matter to many housing advocates.
The webinar is tailored for advocates who are not familiar with utility regulations, but who could benefit from learning how to advocate on them to secure positive outcomes for affordable multifamily housing.
- Charlie Harak of the National Consumer Law Center
- Jennifer Gremmert of Energy Outreach Colorado.

The nascent Energy Efficiency for All Project is comprised of The National Housing Trust, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Energy Foundation, Elevate Energy, and New Ecology. The purpose is to ramp up energy efficiency investment in affordable multifamily housing.
Utility spending on energy efficiency programs is expected to increase substantially over the next decade. By effectively targeting these resources to multifamily affordable housing, advocates can help utilities and state governments achieve their energy efficiency savings goals, increase housing affordability, and create healthier living environments for residents.
To achieve this, the Energy Efficiency for All Project is currently collaborating with local energy and affordable housing partners in nine states (Pennsylvania, Maryland, Rhode Island, New York, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, and California) to ensure that affordable housing receives its fair share of utility funding, and that cost-effective energy efficiency programs are available to building owners and low income residents.
The Energy Efficiency for All Project will have a website soon.
