Ready, Set, Scale. A NEEP Series: Residential Retrofitting at Scale: Whole-Home Approach
July 26 | 11 AM EST
The Ready, Set, Scale. webinar series focuses on the mechanisms key to rapid, equitable decarbonization of the regional commercial and residential buildings sector. This series will examine strong policies and regulations to address building emissions, market transformation for electric space and water heating, community-led solutions, and replicable program and business models for low-carbon retrofits, all with emphasis on workforce development and equity.
Join us all year long for discussions, analysis, and peer learning around collaborative, multi-state approaches to transform the energy efficiency market. These webinars will provide spaces for diverse industry market actors to come together.
Throughout the region, states and communities continue to push the needle to achieve residential energy and climate goals. From the low hanging fruit of weatherization and simple efficiency upgrades to comprehensive, whole-home retrofit approaches - they all aim to achieve increased energy performance of the building stock. However, it has become increasingly clear that we need to radically change the process of achieving deeper energy reductions in homes to reach the region's 2030 goals. Deep energy retrofits or whole-home retrofit programs deliver benefits to both the grid and residents. They do this by drastically lowering energy use, decarbonizing the energy supply, lowering energy bills, and improving the comfort, air quality, and durability of homes. Join us to hear from program administrators and implementers who will identify barriers and solutions to the development of whole-home retrofit programs, highlight ways to effectively deploy these programs on a statewide scale, and spotlight current initiatives across the region.
