Better Buildings Challenge Includes Multifamily Housing

Better BuildingsThe Better Buildings energy efficiency challenge has been expanded to include multifamily housing. The U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the expansion.

About a quarter of U.S. households live in multifamily housing units and spend about $40 billion on energy costs each year. A 20-percent cut in energy use would save $7 billion. The Better Buildings Challenge is a partnership of the government departments, and private and affordable buildings owners and public housing agencies to cut energy waste.

These leaders also broadly share successful strategies that maximize energy efficiency in multifamily housing, contributing actual energy data to verify the energy savings of implemented energy upgrades. Through the Better Buildings Challenge expansion, 50 multifamily partners, representing roughly 200,000 units and more than 190 million square feet, have committed to cutting their energy use by 20 percent in 10 years.
