  • Measuring Deep Energy Retrofits – Michael Anschel – The US faces much the same challenge as the UK on retrofitting homes with the added factor of A/C: "Consider this: If we took account of the entire U.S. housing stock’s carbon responsibility, new and old, and set a cap on what that total amount could be, we could then treat the housing stock as a portfolio. We could see if the problem is, in fact, our historically beautiful but notoriously leaky old homes – or the homes built in the last 40 years, with their AC systems, recessed lights, oversized spaces, and myriad switches. We could develop strategies that allow us to retain our older housing stock with its great bones and aesthetic character while developing a new housing stock that is highly efficient."
