Department of Housing and Urban Development's Energy Web Site

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is mainly focused on low-income housing, but as this Web site explains, its programs are also addressing energy efficiency. By increasing the energy efficiency of housing for low-income families, HUD reduces their annual housing costs, eases their disproportionate burden of energy costs, improves utility management, and expands the nation's use of renewable energy resources. The Web site currently includes information about combined heat and power installations at two multifamily housing units, located in Connecticut and New Jersey. See the HUD Energy Web site.
