Preservation Through Energy Efficiency: Asset Management Training Series




Effectively managing utility expenditures presents an important business opportunity for affordable housing owners in every stage of the development life-cycle. Targeted investments can decrease operating expenses and increase cash flow, open up new fee opportunities, increase effective rents and enhance the residual added value of an entire portfolio.

Enter NH&RA’s Preservation Through Energy Efficiency (PTEE). With generous support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, this educational curriculum was designed to empower decision-makers at affordable housing companies to take immediate executive actions that can create portfolio-wide energy and water efficiencies.

The initiative featured a series of five regional “Road Shows”, convening affordable housing executives, along with technical and financial experts to discuss transactional opportunities around energy and utility efficiency.  This course is a film recording of the NH&RA’s final road show in Chicago.  Session highlights include:

  • Putting it All in Context: Successful Case Examples
  • Spotlight on Water Management
  • Leveraging Local Programs & Resources: Utility Programs & Other Local Partnerships
  • Evaluating Retrofit Financing Options
  • Assessing Your Portfolio’s Needs: Making Data Driven Decisions
  • Creating Buy-in: Implementing Staff & Resident Engagement Strategies
  • Tying It All Together: Lessons Learned & Practical Advice
