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 how states, communities, schools, utilities, and program implementers can leverage IRA funding to expand energy efficiency and clean energy efforts. NEEP staff will present on resources we have available to help all stakeholders build a pathway for IRA funding and grow access to energy efficiency in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. The webinar will explore recommendations for communities to invest in clean energy efforts, available resources to help states and localities adopt and enforce codes, and considerations for how this funding will interact with current energy efficiency programs.
As we wrap 2022, join NEEP to learn about all the opportunities available to grown energy efficiency in 2023.
