    Housing

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (the Council) advances investments in energy efficiency by working with business and government through policy research, communications, and technical assistance. The multifamily rental housing market is adequately served by existing energy-efficiency programs in only a handful of states, despite the fact that nearly one-third of American households are renters. The grant furthers the Council's ability to raise awareness among utility companies and their regulators about the energy-efficiency potential of the multifamily rental housing stock.

    Housing

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy provides policy research, communications and technical assistance to business and government to advance investments in energy efficiency. Residential utility programs that serve multifamily properties often are limited in the energy efficiency improvements that can be made, and financing costs for such investments these properties are high because projected energy savings are less certain. The Council will use this grant to increase financial resources for energy efficiency improvements in multifamily housing by helping to change the policies that govern utility-sponsored energy efficiency programs and by providing technical assistance to financial institutions interested in serving the multifamily market.

    Housing

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy provides businesses and government with policy research, communications, and technical assistance to advance investments in energy efficiency. Although nearly a third of American households are renters, the multifamily rental housing market is inadequately served by existing energy efficiency programs in most states. The Council will use this grant to increase utility companies and regulators awareness about the energy efficiency potential of the multifamily rental housing stock--new attention that could yield nearly $3.4 billion in annual savings to both building owners and residents, and lead to increased affordability and improved living conditions.
