The GreenHome Institute’s – “Great Data, Great Decisions: From Energy to Carbon Ratings, and the IRA”

May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

About this event

Let’s talk about tools and processes to design, build and rate new homes, multifamily buildings, and gut renovations to meet, beat codes, achieve the Inflation Reduction Act 45L tax credits, and obtain green building certifications. We will also discuss the ANSI CO2e Rating Index, which is of growing importance to stakeholders wanting to understand their direct operational carbon emissions impact.
