Decarbonize Affordable Housing Now (DAHN)

In order to meet carbon emissions and energy use reduction goal, Washington State and local governments are deploying updated policies and standards with multi-step compliance requirements. As of 2019, the built environment produced 46% of King County’s carbon emissions.

HDC has convened the Decarbonize Affordable Housing Now (DAHN) Task Force to support our members’ efforts toward decarbonization, efficiency, electrification and healthy materials. We will retrofit an inefficient multi-family property to meet future code compliance in order to document pathways and resources that can be replicated. In addition to the demonstration project(s), we will be creating a toolkit for portfolio management to facilitate broader application of decarbonization work throughout a portfolio of multiple properties.

Additional information will be shared as project documentation becomes available.
