National Grid Presents — Greater Energy Efficiency for Multifamily Buildings — Facing the Unique Challenges

Webinar / May 18, 2017 / New Construction

Learn strategies to achieve greater efficiency in multifamily buildings of all sizes. Multifamily buildings face a unique set of challenges when pursuing energy efficiency. They are buildings that we generally build more like commercial buildings but use more like residential buildings. Additionally, the multifamily market is divided between the residential and commercial energy codes; projects three stories and lower are subject to the residential code and projects four stories or more are subject to the commercial code. This course explores the energy issues particular to the multifamily market and strategies to achieve greater efficiency in multifamily buildings of all heights.
