RENEW Multi-Family Housing

Achieving energy and water efficiency savings for multi-tiered income residents

ECC’s RENEW Multi-Family Housing initiative takes a comprehensive approach to achieving energy and water efficiency savings in multi-family rental housing, particularly in developments that serve low- and moderate-income residents.

Multi-family building owners understand the multiple economic and operating benefits that can be achieved through energy and water retrofits. But too often their operations staff have neither the time nor expertise needed to effectively implement complex efficiency measures. And nonprofit building owners that serve low- and moderate-income communities rarely have access to necessary working capital or project financing for retrofits.

RENEW meets these needs as a one-stop resource providing end-to-end technical support, including tracking energy and water usage, planning and implementing cost-saving measures, integrating utility incentives and facilitating appropriate financing for retrofit projects.

The RENEW team works directly with building owners to achieve fully transparent and accountable results from building performance upgrades. The range of portfolio support we offer includes:


Energy Audits

Financial Packaging

Contractor Acquisition & Oversight

Energy Asset Management

RENEW is an owner’s advocate, not an Energy Services Company or a lender. RENEW facilitates the best solutions using all available technologies and financing tools.
