The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has announced that it will cease insuring new mortgages on properties that include Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) assessments

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency honored the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) with a 2017 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year–Energy Efficiency Program Delivery Award for its sponsorship of programs designed to improve the energy efficiency levels of the nation’s 20 million apartment homes.
 
NMHC was cited for its CEO-level campaign aimed at facilitating access to accurate, aggregated whole building utility consumption data to drive investment in properties. The organization was also praised for the creation of a portal to highlight ENERGY STAR tools and for coordinating a national survey of apartment residents to understand renter preferences of green tech apartment features to help inform future ENERGY STAR branding and outreach to the sector.
 
“With one in seven households living in an apartment, multifamily buildings represent a tremendous opportunity to increase the nation’s energy efficiency,” said NMHC President and CEO Doug Bibby.
