Thank you for joining us for the Residential Retrofits for Energy Equity (R2E2) Summit on January 19 and 20. 

You can now visit the R2E2 Summit website to view recordings of each day’s sessions (available in English and Spanish) and the slide presentations from each session. Attached to this email is the opt-in attendee directory to help you follow up on connections that you made at the summit and see who in your region is working in the affordable housing and energy efficiency space. 

If you have not done so already, please complete the R2E2 Summit feedback survey. We would love to hear how we can improve, and we value your input! To those who have already completed the survey, thank you. Some takeaways for us from your feedback so far include providing more/longer breaks, assigning someone to keep folks accountable to a culture of respect in the chat, and that you are hungry for more opportunities to learn and to network with your peers.

   Thank you to everyone who shared resources in the chat. As one participant said, “The chat was on FIRE! ?” You can access resources shared by other summit attendees in the spreadsheet attached to this email. 

Finally, in case you missed it on Day 2 of the summit, check out an exciting announcement from the Department of Energy (in Spanish here) about a new funding opportunity, the Buildings Upgrade Prize. R2E2 is thrilled to be supporting the Buildings Upgrade Prize with trainings and technical assistance for applicants. You can learn more about the Buildings Upgrade Prize here.

 Thanks again for joining us at the summit. We look forward to continuing to support you in your work through the R2E2 initiative. 

The R2E2 Team
