Realtor Mediated Energy Efficiency

Co-PI on a $48K Seed Grant Request submitted by Prof. Anu Rawaswami and awarded by the Denver Department of Environmental Health to develop and evaluate a delivery model for realtor-mediated energy efficiency retrofits offered at the time of sale.

My contribution was in the area of communications and marketing to realtors during the real estate transaction to see if energy-saving retrofits could be negotiated during the sale, leading to increased efficiencies and more sustainable homes in the Denver region. The study published based on this work is titled Social Actors, Participation Rates and Carbon Footprint Mitigation in US Cities: Case Study of Denver, CO.
