Experience: WHPC Energy Planning Process and Building System Energy Action Plan
In 2022, Elevate worked with the Wisconsin Housing Preservation Corp (WHPC) to develop a portfolio-wide energy planning process to inform and guide energy-related investments across their building portfolio. This planning process developed tools including a portfolio database, an interactive map of the portfolio, a Building System Energy Action Plan, and case studies to centralize the portfolio property information and inform WHPC’s decision making to preserve and provide high quality affordable housing.
