Financing High-Performance

Financing High-Performance: A Guide to Optimizing Energy Performance Across the Multifamily Building Lifecycle explores the practical benefits of designing, financing, building, and maintaining high-performance new construction, as well as the non-energy benefits that add value to the physical asset and to the lives of the tenants it serves.

CPC created this guide to be a valuable resource for the entire multifamily ecosystem (lenders, developers, property managers, housing finance agencies, insurers, appraisers) when confronted with high-performance buildings and new construction projects that do not conform to ‘conventional’ practices.
