Program Manager  |  202-525-2883 x320 Megan Houston

As the Program Manager for Multifamily Finance & DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) projects, Megan leads IMT’s multifamily finance work, focusing on capturing the value of—and building the market for—multifamily high-performance building attributes. Most recently, Megan lead the publication of the report Catalyzing Efficiency: Unlocking Energy Information and Value in Apartment Buildings, which recommends how governments and energy efficiency implementers can better engage owners, managers, residents, lenders, and investors in using data to drive energy and water savings.

In addition, she oversees the Teaming Partner relationship with the DCSEU. Megan is currently developing a pilot program in the District of Columbia that helps multifamily building owners implement energy efficiency measures upon tenant turnover. Other DCSEU initiatives that she coordinates include benchmarking and data access policy research, commercial demonstration projects, and codes education curriculum development.

Before joining IMT in September of 2014, she was a Legal Fellow for the NYC Department of Environmental Protection and represented the City at environmental code violation hearings. Originally from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Megan graduated from the University of Florida and began her career in Atlanta as an interior designer and project manager. Later, Megan earned an M.S. in Urban Environmental Systems Management from Pratt Institute in New York and a J.D. from Brooklyn Law School.
