The federal government, states, and utilities administer programs to improve the energy efficiency of low-income homes and affordable multifamily buildings. Investments in measures to save energy, as simple as air sealing and insulation, can also yield a broad range of non-energy benefits. This presentation will present research results that show that weatherization can improve health, home conditions, and social determinants of health. The results are drawn from three separate studies that were conducted nationally, regionally (Midwest and Northeast), and in Knoxville, Tennessee. Three3, Inc. conducts research and educational programming to promote the integration of environmental, social, and economic sustainability. The organization particularly focuses on fostering sustainable futures that: provide equitable benefits to low-income and disadvantaged populations (intra-generational equity); meets ethical obligations to future generations (inter-generational equity); and makes best use of the convergence of human knowledge and technology to meet sustainability goals.
