Energy-efficient building retrofits will be critical for saving money, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and meeting climate goals. This free webinar, a sneak peak to this month’s Summer Study Buildings, will explore the potential scale and energy savings of retrofits for single-family homes as well as multifamily and commercial buildings. Authors of three Summer Study papers will preview and discuss their findings.
