Free Webinar: Electrification: Fact vs. Fiction, September 8
Event Description

Do many of your clients often have the same questions about electrification, and you’re not sure how to respond?

This session will address common misconceptions surrounding building and transportation electrification. We will explore life cycle costs associated with transitioning to electrified buildings, discuss the evolving electric grid, highlight efficient technologies such as heat pumps and electric vehicles, and evaluate environmental impacts relative to fossil-based technologies. Through interactive discussions and evidence-based insights, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the benefits associated with building electrification, enabling them to make better informed choices that promote a sustainable and efficient future.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify the key clean energy technologies enabling a zero-net carbon future
  • Address common misconceptions regarding the performance of heat pumps and other electric technologies, their impact on grid infrastructure, and their affordability
  • Describe the efficiencies of electric end-use appliances and vehicles relative to their fossil-fuel combustion counterparts
  • Leverage available incentive programs, tax credits, and rebates supporting the deployment of heat pumps, electric equipment upgrades, and energy efficient appliances

Learning Level:

Basic Class: Content is introductory in nature and requires no prerequisite knowledge or experience to grasp the concepts or participate in exercises. Basic educational activities and materials are meant to establish a foundation of knowledge and competence that will be expanded upon in practice or in higher level seminars and workshops.
