The Future of Domestic Hot Water in New York City, Feb 6, New York
Event Description

As buildings in New York City become more reliant on renewable and stored energy, air source heat pump (ASHP) domestic hot water systems will likely become more prevalent in multifamily buildings over the coming decades. These systems have specific challenges, including:

What are the technological barriers? Do any seem insurmountable?
How well can new hot water equipment interface with existing piping and infrastructure?
How does solar thermal fit in? Is there a future for combined thermal / PV panels in the NYC market?
Can heat pumps entirely replace conventional hot water heaters, or will back-up systems be needed?

This event builds upon Urban Green’s 2017 conference which explored the role of broad electrification of building systems in NYC’s 80x50 Climate Plan.
