Event Description

Join Illinois Green Alliance and the Midwest Building Decarbonization Coalition for a panel discussion demystifying high energy performance buildings (such as Passive House) and incremental costs in the affordable housing sector.

Developing and/or rehabilitating buildings with deep energy efficiency is a cost-effective way to maintain and provide healthier, more comfortable and affordable homes for residents. Session panelists will share evidence, including examples from other states, showing how housing finance authorities can incentivize much greater energy conservation achievement without adding to construction and operating costs in affordable housing projects.
