Ready, Set, Scale. A NEEP Series
December 13 | 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.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) represents one of the most significant climate investments ever made in United States history and sets the nation on a path to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030. In total, the Act includes $369 billion for climate action and energy security, with $60 billion dedicated to environmental justice communities, specifically for investment in weatherization, electrification, workforce, and code adoption.
This webinar will be a continuation of the discussion we started back in November and will look at steps that states, utilities, and businesses can take now to get themselves ready for incoming IRA funding. How can state energy offices use this funding to expand their energy efficiency and beneficial electrification efforts? What role can utilities serve in this process and how can IRA programs complement current energy efficiency portfolios? How can energy efficiency businesses help to spend these funds and enable more access to the benefits of IRA programs? As we wrap up our 2022 Ready, Set, Scale. webinar series, join NEEP to hear from industry stakeholders who will tackle these and other questions to help prepare for implementation of the IRA.
