Join us for the first 2021 episode of Radio BE-Ex, as Sadie McKeown of CPC joins Yetsuh Frank to discuss financing high-performance retrofits at scale.
New York’s climate objectives cannot be met without widespread building retrofits. City and State initiatives like the NYC Accelerator and RetrofitNY are focused on accelerating the development of a self-sustaining market for scalable high-performance retrofit solutions. But what role will finance need to play in order to support the required scale and pace of this market growth? And how will that role vary across affordable and market rate properties?
Sadie McKeown is the Executive Vice President at the Community Preservation Corporation, a leading nonprofit affordable housing and community revitalization finance company. Join us for a conversation with Sadie on the ways in which lenders can support retrofit projects that improve energy efficiency, occupant health, and comfort.
