This pilot tests a novel targeting and outreach strategy for the income eligible multifamily sector by analyzing energy benchmarking results.


For this pilot, Elevate Energy and the Institute for Market Transformation will partner with the City of Chicago to design and test a novel outreach strategy for the income eligible multifamily sector. The pilot team will analyze benchmarking results for large income eligible multifamily buildings in Chicago and target their owners with a unique support package. The team will test various outreach strategies on the target audience including curated educational resources, workshops, and free energy assessments. The pilot team will then collect and analyze information on building performance, participant engagement in incentive programs, and participant feedback, using this information to develop recommendations for next steps.
