This is the third session in a series on building electrification at Energy Exchange. After covering the basics of building electrification and implementation pathways, are you curious about what the future of building electrification looks like? This session will focus on innovative and emerging electrification technologies. Learn from the Federal agencies and the private sector implementing a broad range of electrification technologies ranging from thermal energy storage to micro-nuclear reactors. These technological innovations will be key in achieving the Biden Administration’s goal of a Net-Zero Emissions Building portfolio by 2045.
