R2E2 Playbook: A Comprehensive Guide for Equitable Energy Retrofits in Affordable Housing  

June 26, 2024, 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. ET  

The Residential Retrofits for Energy Equity (R2E2) Playbook is a tool for community-based organizations, state and local governments, and others seeking to establish, improve, or expand energy upgrade programs for low- and moderate-income housing in their communities.   

By highlighting dozens of strategies and examples across the country, the Playbook will help administrators establish programs that are community-led, easy to use, and that achieve benefits like healthier and more affordable housing, reduced energy burdens, new economic opportunities for workers and small business owners, and reduced pollution. This one-hour webinar will feature guest speakers from some of the over 90 programs highlighted in the Playbook.  

R2E2 is a partnership of the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), Elevate, Emerald Cities Collaborative, and HR&A Advisors.
