In order to effectively underwrite a Passive House project and leverage utility savings to support higher costs, lenders need to understand how Passive House buildings perform compared to their non-Passive peers. This includes understanding all of the benefits, financial and otherwise, that can accrue to building owners and tenants. Armed with this information, lenders can begin to develop more aggressive underwriting standards to help overcome the cost barriers that prevent wider adoption of these principles.

In this session, participants will explore operational data and analysis from a study focused on multifamily Passive House buildings in NYC. The study — a collaboration between the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development, Bright Power, Steven Winter Associates, and Community Preservation Corporation — works to demystify Passive performance and incremental costs.
