Overview of ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction Webinar Slide (8/17/2021)

While ENERGY STAR certification for new construction multifamily buildings was previously allowed through the Certified Homes and MFHR programs, the ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction (MFNC) program is now required for any multifamily building with building permits on or after July 1, 2021.

The MFNC program is a streamlined certification program available to multifamily buildings of any height and contains similar technical requirements as the Certified Homes and MFHR programs. It offers project teams greater flexibility by allowing three options to achieving the Performance Target (ERI, ASHRAE 90.1, Prescriptive), and to ease the transition, features the same checklist-style for program documents as Certified Homes.

This webinar, presented on August 17, 2021, provides an overview of program requirementsbuilding eligibility, the certification process, and the roles and responsibilities of project team members.
