Energy & Sustainability

D3G performs energy and sustainability studies of existing and proposed multifamily facilities.

We are pleased to have completed the first ever Green Property Condition Assessment (GPCA) for the HUD OAHP Mark-to-Market program, and we were a primary go-to consultant for the ARRA Green Retrofit Multifamily Program. An objective of the GPCA report is to identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency, maximize utility efficiency, and increase a property’s sustainability. A key benefit of the GPCA is to capitalize upon utility reduction, whereby lessening the resident’s burden and increasing a property’s net operating income (NOI).

D3G has been an early participant in HUD’s Green Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) Reduction Program and supported clients through all the Green and Energy components. For New Construction and Gut Rehab, we can provide the energy modeling/Statement of Energy Design Intent reports, Green Building Consulting and Verification and the required Data Acquisition Plan. For existing buildings, we provide the Energy Benchmarking/Statement of Energy Performance, ENERGY STAR Existing Building Certification or other green building consulting, as well as the Data Acquisition Plan. Once the property is occupied D3G can also support clients with ongoing annual compliance reporting. We have engaged on many green MIP projects and can help clients identify the most efficient approach to access this program.

D3G has also worked on numerous energy and green building pilot programs. Recently, we supported HUD’s Moving To Work Demonstration Program by reviewing Self-Approved Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) to ensure program requirements are met and the benefits are sufficient to service debt incurred to install energy conservation measures.
