EnergyScoreCards Minnesota Phase II

Ashly McFarlane

EnergyScoreCards Minnesota Phase II (Phase II) is part of Minnesota Housing’s ongoing effort to enhance and refine its sustainability policies. To date, Minnesota Housing has focused on green standards for new construction and rehabilitation projects. Minnesota Housing used Phase II to build on the foundation of the original EnergyScoreCards Minnesota pilot and current internal sustainability initiatives by focusing on asset management and improving the energy and water efficiency of the agency’s existing portfolio of buildings through retrofits. In Phase II, utility benchmarking data was collected and used in combination with in-depth technical assistance provided to owners and property managers in order to help implement energy and water efficiency projects at 31 subsidized, multifamily, affordable housing buildings.


This research was funded and led by Minnesota Housing Finance Agency.
