Residents living in multifamily buildings – particularly those living in low-income communities – benefit greatly from energy efficiency upgrades and retrofits. In addition to decreasing the financial burden on renters, these investments reduce carbon emissions and increase the climate resiliency of our housing stock while improving indoor air quality and creating healthier and safer homes for families.
On TFN’s next Power Forward Webinar, Oct. 9 at 11 a.m. PST, a panel of funders and experts will have a vitally important conversations on affordable housing, energy efficiency and environmental justice. We will learn about solutions that are equitable and community-driven, as well as organizing and mobilization work happening nationally to support energy efficiency policies.
The webinar will feature Energy Efficiency for All (EEFA), a partnership that aims to build collective power and connects climate, health, and equity by bringing energy efficiency to affordable housing through state-based coalitions and a national social impact network, the Network for Energy, Water, and Health in Affordable Buildings (NEWHAB). In addition, EEFA partner the Greenlining Institute, will present on their Equitable Electrification Framework: A Framework for Powering Resilient Communities to be released in early October.
