- 12PM EST
More than half of greenhouse gas emissions come from commercial, industrial, and large residential buildings. Thermal electrification & connected buildings are considered a key pathway for achieving carbon neutrality. There are four primary strategies for large building decarbonization: zero net carbon standards; energy efficiency; renewable energy; and the transition of space heating and cooling, and hot water to non-fossil fuels, primarily through electrification powered by renewable energy.
We will discuss these pathways and technologies with our panel of industry representatives moderated by Kent Larson, the Director of the City Science research group at the MIT Media Lab.
Date: Friday, January 15th, 2020
Time: 12PM to 1PM
Platform: Zoom Meeting
