Massachusetts Affordable Housing Energy Efficiency Working Group

Naomi coordinated the collaboration and discussion between the state affordable housing agencies and utilities in Massachusetts to identify opportunities to maximize potential energy efficiency savings during refinance. The 2016-2018 Massachusetts Joint Statewide Three Year Energy Efficiency and Gas Efficiency Plan included a commitment for the Program Administrators to work with Massachusetts’ housing finance agencies to leverage multi-family refinance events to maximize whole building energy efficiency. Naomi facilitated the kick-off charrette to guide the ten partner agencies and organizations in identifying common objectives for the engagement. Naomi supported the partners in carrying out the document exchange, research, and analysis necessary to clarify the areas for opportunity. The engagement came to a close through a workshop facilitated by Naomi where the partners came to a consensus on a set of recommendations and actions that best leveraged the opportunities for energy efficiency implementation during refinance.
