Innovative Solutions to Advance Efficient, Equitable, Sustainable Housing Needs for Oregon’s Future

Join Energy Trust of Oregon on May 25 for a special webinar and hear from experts who are making cost-informed decisions that bring energy efficiency and resiliency to multifamily housing.

Topics covered by our multifamily housing panel will include:

  • Best practices within new construction and major renovations projects for energy-efficient, sustainable and resilient multifamily communities
  • How design decisions are informed by housing demands, long-term maintenance concerns, construction costs and funding constraints
  • Insights on balancing competing design priorities to finance energy efficiency
  • Strategies for efficient heating and cooling systems and design solutions that have been successfully implemented in both affordable and market-rate housing projects
  • Lessons learned during the multifamily design and construction process
