Smart Energy Homes and Buildings 2020

Northeast Smart Energy Homes and Buildings Workshop - Evolving Homes and Buildings to Keep Up with the Evolving Grid

As our region moves towards modernizing our grids to meet the electric demands of the 21st century, it is critical that our homes and buildings also evolve and respond to the modern grid by becoming smarter, more efficient, flexible and adaptable. Smart Energy Homes and Buildings 2020 will take a look at the technologies, policies, and regional coordination necessary to accelerate the realization of smart energy homes and buildings across the region. We will map out current and future opportunities that will get us there. Key stakeholders include federal program representatives, energy efficiency program administrators, implementation experts, research and development professionals, manufacturers, and facility managers.
