The Race Toward Decarbonization

Many states in the Northeast have aggressive long-term carbon reduction goals, but are we on track to get there? While energy efficiency has been critical to minimize load growth and in some cases turn the curve downward, reductions in greenhouse gases from the building sector have been glacially slow in comparison with electric generation emissions reductions in the Northeast. We need to move swiftly and steeply down in carbon emissions to reach our goals. This session will present an action plan towards decarbonization, including a focus on new construction and  air source heat pumps, to help the region meet our decarbonization goals.
