Decarb for a New Tomorrow
Natural gas accounts for over 50% of the recent carbon dioxide growth in the past few years, leading some policymakers to look at building decarbonization to meet local climate goals. Designers are seeking new technologies to reduce carbon and meet these policies through all-electric and hybrid solutions. NBI will present three initiatives focused on technologies to support the industry’s transition to low carbon building operations. Learn about the developments in residential and commercial heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, induction cooking, renewable energy, electric vehicles, energy storage systems, smart controls, and more. By the end of the webinar, participants will understand key actions and technologies to implement on their projects to reduce carbon emissions.
