More than half of greenhouse gas emissions come from commercial, industrial, and large residential buildings. Thermal electrification & connected buildings are considered a key pathway for achieving carbon neutrality. There are four primary strategies for large building decarbonization:

 

  • applying deep energy retrofits/planning energy efficiency measures into new buildings
  • procuring or producing renewable energy
  • shifting to all-electrification for space heating, cooling, hot water to non-fossil fuels (assuming a clean energy grid)
  • zero net carbon standards for all building codes

 

We will ask questions such as

 

  • Why are buildings so energy intensive?
  • How can energy efficiency in buildings and a cut in CO2 emissions be achieved with new technologies?
  • What partners need to sit at the same table to achieve a comprehensive energy and low-carbon transition in the built environment?

 

and discuss these pathways and technologies with our panel of industry representatives moderated by Kent Larson, the Director of the City Science research group at the MIT Media Lab.
