New Ecology is a trusted, strategic advisor to building owners, architects, contractors, utility energy efficiency programs, and state housing finance and energy agencies. National green building actors such as LISC, Enterprise Community Partners, Neighborworks, and the US Green Building Council value New Ecology’s expertise.
New Ecology offers consulting services in the design of programs and products that deliver innovative sustainability outcomes:
- Connecticut Green Bank asked New Ecology to help design its Multifamily Technical Assistance Pre-Development Loan Program as an affordable, practical, one-stop solution to help multifamily owners analyze energy-saving opportunities and arrange financing for efficiency upgrades and renewables.
- Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) selected New Ecology to enhance the energy efficiency and green building certification guidance and add utility benchmarking incentive points to the Delaware Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) for Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
- Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (DESEU), New Ecology and Elevate Energy are partnering to launch a Multifamily Housing Energy loan program in 2017. The one-stop-shop will help owners evaluate and fund energy efficiency and renewables, either as targeted retrofits, or as part of larger-scope rehabilitation, adaptive re-use or new construction projects.
- Enterprise Community Partners engaged New Ecology to create a rapid resilience assessment protocol as well as an in-depth resilience assessment process to support owners of affordable multifamily housing and public housing in the State of New York and in New York City. The objective of this work is to identify practical, cost-effective greening and resilience strategies to improve the resilience of multifamily buildings and address the health and well-being of building residents during extreme events.
- Michigan State Housing Development Authority engaged New Ecology to assist its Asset Management Division on a pilot program to use the Actual Consumption Method of calculating utility allowances. Using the WegoWise online benchmarking tool with approximately 400 buildings, NEI showed the dramatic variations in performance across the funded portfolio.
