Decoding Grid Integrated Buildings
November 12 @ 10:00 am - November 13 @ 1:00 pm PST
The Building Decarbonization Coalition, with Gridworks, will host a two-day summit to explore the impact of building electrification on electric panels and neighborhood-level distribution grid components and examine solutions to overcome cost, policy, grid, scalability, and technology barriers that could hold back large-scale decarbonization. Participants will hear from top thinkers and practitioners at the cutting-edge of the grid interface of electrification and collectively take part in a discussion of solutions that will lead policy makers, load-serving entities, and communities towards pathways to scale electrification.
Space is limited! Please RSVP via EventBrite by November 1.
