Getting to Zero in Affordable Multifamily Buildings

NBI's Getting to Zero webinar series provides ongoing opportunities for knowledge sharing around actionable solutions to drive the highest levels of efficiency in buildings. Low-income communities are most at risk of being left behind as local jurisdictions pursue ambitious carbon reduction goals. Presenters from The Community Preservation Corporation and Association for Energy Affordability will share challenges, lessons learned, and actual cost data from successful zero energy affordable multifamily projects. Multifamily Case studies will cover new construction, deep energy retrofits, getting to zero in a hot-humid climate zone, and more. ASHRAE will present their upcoming AEDG zero energy multifamily guide.

Zero Net Energy Commercial Forum
