Free Webinar: Residential Building Electrification Pathways
Event Description

Across the country, there is a move toward building electrification, replacing appliances that use other fuels with electricity. Learn about the trends in retrofitting we are most likely to see in the coming years that move the U.S. toward a 100% electric future. Bring your questions about how the following efficiency technologies can work together: Weatherization, heat pump water heating, efficient heat pumps, induction stoves, and electric infrastructure upgrades.

The diverse panelists from across the country to discuss:

  • Common things that building owners and code officials may notice (based on code cycle and location) and how to resolve them
  • Pathways toward 100% electrification - it doesn’t have to happen all at once!
  • The role heat pump space and water heating technology plays in the transition
  • Tools and training for help code officials, homeowners, and policy makers better understand the transition
  • SolSmart program available to help communities improve permitting and inspection processes to support electrification with solar power
