New Energy Codes and their Impact on Housing Costs featuring Evelyn Lim

July 15, 2022

On this episode of Tradeswork: The Rocky Mountain Mechanical Contractors Association Podcast, we welcome Evelyn Lim, Common Sense Institute's 2022 Mike A. Leprino Fellow & 2021 Terry J. Stevinson Fellow. Evelyn is the Director of Policy and Research at the American Cornerstone Institute.  She was most recently the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Regional Administrator for Region 8 which covers Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Earlier this year she authored a paper titled "The Uncertain Future Cost of Colorado’s Energy Infrastructure and Housing Affordability." Here are some of the questions you can expect to be answered on the show:

  • How has the growth of Colorado's population impacted the housing market?
  • How many new housing units need to be built to accommodate demand?
  • What are the new energy codes builders need to consider as they build new units?
  • How might those codes affect price?
  • What are the costs associated with moving toward universal electrification?
