What a pleasure to be in Nashville in April at the National Home Performance Conference, where I led a workshop, A Proven Tool, a New Program: Integrated Design Meets Multifamily Electrification!
At the Building Performance Association’s 2022 National Home Performance Conference in Nashville, I’ll be running an interactive workshop: “A Proven Tool, A New Problem: Integrated Design Meets Multifamily Electrification.”
Somehow, another year has flown by! With a hopeful start offered by vaccines and a change in the presidential administration, we looked forward to some relief from the COVID challenges of 2020 and chances to reconnect and move forward. And while the COVID story is not yet finished, 2021 did have many good moments.
Urban Habitat Initiatives President Kimberly Vermeer reflects on the conferences and events this fall.
The lack of affordable housing and the climate crisis are two of the most pressing challenges facing cities today. Green affordable housing addresses both by providing housing stability, safety, and financial predictability while reducing environmental impacts. At the Greenbuild Conference and Expo next week, Urban Habitat Initiatives President Kimberly Vermeer will be discussing key findings from her book, Blueprint for Greening Affordable Housing, Revised Edition with co-author Walker Wells.
2020 and 2021 brought issues of health, equity, and resilience into sharp focus for green building and sustainability practitioners. At the Greenbuild Conference and Expo virtual Resilience Summit next week, Urban Habitat Initiatives President Kimberly Vermeer will be discussing key findings from her book, Blueprint for Greening Affordable Housing, Revised Edition.
Leading with sustainability as a core value opens an organization up to growth.
On March 17th, Urban Habitat Initiatives President Kimberly Vermeer will be tackling this topic as the moderator of the “Making the Numbers Work for Sustainability” plenary panel at the Urban Land Institute Housing Opportunity Conference.
