Expanding to Include the Multifamily Residential Sector

In 2013, the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) partnered to expand the Better Buildings Challenge to the multifamily sector. This expansion is part of President Obama's Climate Action Plan, announced on June 25, 2013, which recognizes the role that increased efficiency can play in reducing energy use and carbon pollution from this sector. Multifamily residential buildings and operations can be made much more efficient using a variety of cost-effective energy improvements, while simultaneously creating jobs and building a stronger economy. Participating residential building owners and managers have committed to reducing energy consumption by at least 20 percent over 10 years. Multifamily Partners are leaders in market rate (unsubsidized) multifamily housing, Public Housing Authorities, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit properties, and HUD-assisted multifamily properties.
