Through technological advancements, incentives, and newly adopted administrative goals implementing policies for decarbonizing the buildings sector is becoming easier and more important. Decarbonizing buildings offers a host of benefits including improved indoor air quality, reduced occupant risks, fewer emissions, and reduced costs. Still, many important considerations exist when making this transition. In this webinar, technical experts will highlight various decarbonization technologies, such as heat pumps, grid integrated technologies, solar generation, and energy storage. The benefits and trade-offs of each approach will be discussed and explored for various building types.
