Given the influence mortgage lenders can have on the economics and conditions of the urban building stock, the banking industry has a unique opportunity to advance the incorporation of energy saving measures at the time of refinance or acquisition.

The panel will also be the public launch of a new resource for the housing industry: Underwriting Efficiency: A Mortgage Lender's Handbook for realizing energy and water efficiency opportunities in multifamily housing.

Produced by the Community Preservation Corporation and developed with the support of Energy Efficiency for All, the handbook is an easy-to-use guide that provides lenders with information on the tangible benefits of efficiency measures, how to discuss the topic with owners, and how to incorporate the potential savings into the underwriting process.

Underwriting Efficiency is poised to accelerate efficiency upgrades and clean energy projects.
