March Peer to Peer Meeting (Revised Time & Zoom Pre-Registration)
March 19 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Hello Multifamily Peer to Peer Network:
I’m resending the calendar invite for next week’s (Friday, March 19) meeting for two reasons.
1. We are changing the time to 10:30 – 11:30 am. Our guest speaker Beverly Craig will start around 10:30. Deane will announce to the P2P members that we will keep the meeting open after the presentation for more discussion (similar to pre-COVID in-person meetings).
2. We are inviting others outside our “normal” Peer to Peer invite list, so we are requesting that people register to attend this presentation. We want to capture the contact information of those who are attending/interested in joining. The revised ZOOM link is below; please register in advance.

Scaling Up Passive Multi-Family: What’s Up in Massachusetts (Presented by Beverly Craig, Senior Program Manager, Low & Moderate Income Programs, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center)
Two years ago, there was only one certified passive multi-family development in Massachusetts. Today there 8 Affordable Passive Multi-family buildings recently completed or under construction and another 106 buildings that have least completed passive house feasibility studies and passive house energy models. The majority of those plan to certify.
So why the change? Learn about the evolution of incentives, policy, educational offers in Massachusetts that have led to a dramatic scaling up of passive multifamily projects. Hear about the incremental costs 8 affordable housing passive projects are seeing and lessons they are learning that are already bringing costs down. Find out about educational resources available on demand to all (yes even out of state!) through Passive House Massachusetts.
