  1. Moving to Affordable Housing with ENERGY STAR

  2. QUESTION ? • Is a home affordable if it... • has higher operating and maintenance costs? • increases default risk under homeownership? • doesn’t provide a comfortable indoor environment? • doesn’t maintain future value?

  3. Affordable Housing • Utility costs in public and assisted housing are more than a quarter of operating costs • Maintenance is more than a third

  4. Affordable Housing • As utility rates rise, affordable owners are pinched between debt service requirements and rising operating costs • Allowances are adjusted after rate increases, leaving tenants paying higher costs until allowances catch up

  5. ENERGY STAR® • National brand representing energy, financial & environmental performance • Over 40 product categories covering appliances, residential lighting, consumer electronics & office equipment • Certification of top energy performance for homes & buildings

  6. Why ENERGY STAR Works • ENERGY STAR symbol adds value to products and services • Simple, consistent national platform • Flexible, so partners can take ownership • Builds on existing market structures

  7. Why Choose ENERGY STAR? • Lower utility costs • Lower maintenance costs • Improved durability and comfort • Streamlined procurement • Increased property value • Reduced air pollution / improved environment

  8. www.energystar.gov

  9. Energy Star Options • Products • Homes (New) and Home Performance (Existing) • Business (Office, retail, etc.)

  10. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING Existing Housing: • Specify ENERGY STAR products • Implement Home Performance w/ENERGY STAR (where available) New Housing: • Specify homes/units meet ENERGY STAR (3 stories or less)

  11. Products • Easy. Specify ENERGY STAR in modernization and maintenance purchases • Sample procurement language and calculators available • see energystar.gov, then “Products,” then “Purchasing and Procurement”

  12. ENERGY STAR Labeled Products HVAC Programmable Thermostats Home Office Home Electronics Lighting Fixtures Ceiling Fans Water Coolers Dehumidfiers Roofing Products Transformers Telephony Lighting Office/computer equipment Ventilation Fans Insulation Appliances Refrigerators/Freezers Dishwashers Clothes Washers Room Air Conditioners Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) Windows, Doors, Skylights Compact Refrigerators, Freezers

  13. ENERGY STARSpecification Development • Product Selection: • Based on national energy savings potential, ability of label to influence consumers • Recommendations from internal analysis or partners • Specifications: • Must be significant improvement over national average • Developed with stakeholder (industry, utilities, and efficiency advocates) input

  14. ENERGY STAR Product $avings • Refrigerators – At least 15% more efficient than the minimum federal efficiency standard. • Clothes Washers -- Compared to a model manufactured before 1994, an ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washer can save up to $110 per year on your utility bills. • Dishwashers - Use a minimum of 25% less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption. • Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) - Use 2/3 less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last 6-10 times longer. • Furnaces - Offer a rating of 90% AFUE or greater, which is about 15% more efficient than the minimum federal efficiency standard.

  15. Refrigerator Bulk Purchases • New HUD web page • http://www.hud.gov/offices/pih /programs/ph/phecc/bulkpurchase.cfm • Participation from GE, Whirlpool, Sears government sales • ENERGY STAR models identified

  16. New HUD ENERGY STAR Bulk Purchasing Website

  17. Home Improvement • Home Sealing • Seal leaks in the building envelope • Add insulation • Use ENERGY STAR windows when replacing old windows • No “label” • see energystar.gov, then “Home Improvement,” then “Home Sealing”

  18. Home Improvement • Home Performance with ENERGY STAR • ’Whole-House’ improvementsEPA works with state and utility partners • Combines Audit, Evaluation, ImprovementsEmphasis on delivering improvements • Quality AssuranceDiagnostics and “best practice” installationAccredited performance contractors • see energystar.gov, then “Home Improvement,” then “Home Performance”

  19. Home Improvement • Inspection • Visual and diagnostic inspection of walls, windows, foundation, and mechanicals • Diagnostics • Air infiltration, duct leakage testing, combustion safety tests • Fee basis. Same quality-assured contractors can also implement recommended upgrades • No “label”

  20. HOME PERFORMANCE With ENERGY STAR • Arizona • California • Colorado • Georgia • Idaho • Illinois • Massachusetts • Maine • New Jersey • New York • Oregon • Rhode Island • Texas • Vermont • Wisconsin • Wyoming

  21. ENERGY STAR FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION/GUT REHAB • Eligible Housing • Single-family • Multi-family (up to 3 stories) • Energy Efficient Performance • 15-20% > IECC, & • Verifies thermal integrity of home envelope • Includes ENERGY STAR Lighting and Appliances • Third-Party Verified • Each home’s energy performance is independently verified

  22. ENERGY STAR FOR HOMES PROCESS • Find HERS Rater • ENERGY STAR for Homes Partner Locator • Select Energy Efficiency Measures • Prescriptive Package (BOP) • HERS Analysis/Plan Review • Field Verification • Inspection • Diagnostics • Certification

  23. ENERGY STAR HOMES ENERGY STAR Qualified Lighting, Fans, or Appliances IECC Insulation Properly Installed Continuous Air Barrier ES Qualified Windows Right-Sized ES Equip. Tight Ducts, Tested Eff. Water Htr. Build it Tight, Tested

  24. NEXT STEPS • Planning • Existing Housing • Physical needs assessments and asset planning • Energy audits, utility bill tracking and benchmarking • New Projects • Master planning and budgeting • Select A/E firms and consultants with energy efficiency experience

  25. NEXT STEPS • Financing • Retrofits create cash flow and enable internally or externally financed projects • Reduce maintenance costs for older systems, saving on parts and outsourced specialty services

  26. NEXT STEPS • Procurement • Develop ENERGY STAR specifications for use with architects, engineers, or local trades contractors • Include ENERGY STAR in competitive grant applications and developer qualifications

  27. NEXT STEPS • Operations and Maintenance • Develop and execute O&M plans that ensure original design intent is maintained • Specify ENERGY STAR for routine replacements • Develop preventative maintenance and recommissioning plans to ensure continued peak performance

  28. Summary • ENERGY STAR is not extra credit, It’s critical to your core mission… • Truly Affordable Housing • More Viable Communities • Increased Operating Income
