Where Are We Headed with Home Electrification?

Many countries, including the US, are seeking ways to decrease current carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to respond to the concerns about global warming. Electrification of homes is a key strategy in transitioning to renewable energy sources and reducing CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels. LBNL recently completed a study that surveyed the deep retrofits of more than 1,500 homes across the US. The findings identify emerging trends in deep energy retrofit projects and we outline where changes are occurring most rapidly, such as electrification, decarbonization, advancing heat pump technologies, smart controls, and new program designs.

Electric Buildings - A Path to Healthier People + Planet

The planet is in trouble and its human occupants don’t fare much better as rates of cancer, asthma, infertility and obesity increase. Consideration for systems, materials and finishes with low embodied, as well as operational carbon is critical. 

Instructor: Karla Butterfield

Inspiring Homebuyers and Building Owners to Demand Net-Zero Energy and Zero Emission Homes/Buildings

Net-zero energy and zero emission homes/buildings are being built ALL across the U.S., and yet so many buyers either don’t know this level of performance, including optimized comfort and minimized maintenance, is within their grasp. Our panelists on this episode are helping to dispel these misunderstandings.
