GREEN Webinar: Clean Energy Resources For COVID-19 Response, Bay Area

Join us next Thursday for this upcoming sustainable housing webinar with ELPN, “Clean Energy Resources for COVID-19 Response.”

Given the economic impact of the pandemic, the need to reduce operating costs and tenants’ bills is more urgent than ever. This webinar will provide a high-level overview of California and Bay Area specific policies and programs focused on building decarbonization for existing multifamily affordable housing properties. It will also look at how Bay Area developers and organizations are applying these policies and programs in their work and will briefly explore how the design of affordable homes can contribute to decarbonization. 

Along with understanding funding options, the discussion will identify steps to take to assemble a successful project team, such as: What does decarbonization look like for the design team? What are some early considerations when considering going all electric? How do decarbonization goals tie in with programs like LEED? The panel will share resources and tools to help you navigate these unprecedented times, and help all of us build healthier, more resilient communities in the future.
