Ready, Set, Scale. A NEEP Series
October 19 | 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.
To implement the Inflation Reduction Act Home Energy Rebate Programs, state energy offices will need to address how to obtain access to consumer energy data and use it to better inform program design and customer outreach. Energy data looks at customers’ energy use and behaviors. Unlocking this data can enhance energy efficiency programs by identifying new ways to save energy and foster equitable program design and delivery. Additionally, making data accessible can educate and empower customers to better manage their own energy use in homes, large buildings, and even entire communities.
Many states do not have programs to access, protect, and utilize data. To help in this effort, IRA rebates guidance asks states to submit a data access plan, in partnership with utilities, that will determine how to gather data safely and securely and standardize access. This webinar will introduce the data requirements in the Home Energy Rebates, identify examples of successful data-sharing and data-informing questions, explore other ways data can enhance programs through customer engagement and identify those with the highest energy burden.
