Register for the webinar
Attend the webinar to be eligible for free technical assistance in developing your own 20% roadmap.
Every Better Buildings Challenge (BBC) Multifamily partner knows that your core commitment as a BBC leader is to reduce your portfolio-wide energy consumption by 20%. We spend a lot of time on the details. But it's also important to step back and take the long view. This webinar will demonstrate the use of a planning tool developed by Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) that helps you create a strategy for reaching energy or water reduction targets for your portfolio, sort through different conservation options, and make informed choices that demonstrate to decision makers a concrete path to success.
By attending this webinar, participants will:
- Learn how the tool is used to develop a custom strategy to reach your own energy reduction goals
- Compare and contrast different measures, such as energy retrofits, improved O&M, appliance upgrades, resident engagement strategies, solar domestic hot water and solar photovoltaic
- Understand how the tool is used to suit the characteristics of your portfolio, such as property age, financing cycles, and prior efficiency work completed
- Hear from a BBC partner who has used the tool to plan improvements over time

Take advantage of free technical assistance virtual workshops to develop your own 20 percent roadmap. In the weeks after the webinar, two BBC partners at a time will work with experts to enter your energy and water baseline information, current energy consumption, and develop plans for your energy and water efficiency improvements. Our goal is for each partner to leave the workshop with a detailed plan to hit your 20 percent target. Prerequisites for workshop attendance include:
- Attend the webinar in person or view the recording;
- Have an established baseline year of energy data; and
- Be actively benchmarking your portfolio's utility consumption.
