Energy Efficiency in Affordable Housing

Consulting for Energy Efficiency in Affordable Housing 

At Gilleran Energy Management (GEM), we recognize that a thriving community is one that offers opportunities for everyone. However, there are a number of obstacles in the affordable housing industry that can hinder this kind of progress, ranging from financial disincentives to a lack of available funds or a limited understanding of rapidly evolving construction delivery processes. While not every affordable housing project faces these obstacles, each can impede the integration of energy efficiency and other green features.

Our team of dedicated analysts is here to help with comprehensive energy efficiency consulting. As independent consultants, we take a methodical approach to strategize and support the efforts of design and construction teams while providing innovative solutions to potential roadblocks in project development. Our turnkey solutions and well-informed strategies are designed to not only reduce operational and energy costs for building owners but also enhance the quality of life for their future occupants.
