Illinois Green Alliance and the Midwest Building Decarbonization Coalition hosted a panel discussion demystifying high energy performance buildings (such as Passive House) and incremental costs in the affordable housing sector.

Developing and/or rehabilitating buildings with deep energy efficiency is a cost-effective way to maintain and provide healthier, more comfortable and affordable homes for residents. Session panelists shared evidence, including examples from other states, showing how housing finance authorities can incentivize much greater energy conservation achievement without adding to construction and operating costs in affordable housing projects.

Opening remarks were provided by Kristin Faust, Executive Director, Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA).

Speakers included:

  • Travis Anderson, Director of Innovative Design at Placetailor
  • Charlene Andreas, Director of Building Development at Latin United Community Housing Association (LUCHA)
  • Susan King, Principal at HED
  • Julie Klump, Vice President of Design and Building Performance atPreservation of Affordable Housing
  • Tim McDonald, President at Onion Flats, LLC
