“Roadmap” to Energy Efficiency in Affordable Housing Presentation

March 23, 2011, Chapel, Vermont College, Montpelier, VT, 8:45 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Presenters: Energy Balance; Cx Associates; Regulatory Assistance Project Sponsored by the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board In the summer of 2008 the price of heating oil  spiked to nearly $5 per gallon.  The price spike sent shockwaves through Vermont’s affordable rental housing delivery system. Many of us met to discuss short- and long-term strategies to protect affordable rental housing.  One outcome of this effort was a major planning effort to develop a “roadmap” of building envelope options and optimal mechanical systems to prepare  the multifamily housing stock for the potential inflationary impacts of the 21st century world energy markets. We are pleased to announce that the “roadmap” study is completed. We hope that you can join us for a presentation of its findings and recommendations. The day’s events will include a presentation by the Regulatory Assistance Project of  European approaches to funding energy efficiency.
