E is for Electrification


Maureen Mahle

Maureen Mahle, Managing Director, Sustainable Housing Services

Industry experts now believe that electrification is our best path to a low-carbon world. But we can think of at least a handful of reasons why this sounds ludicrous, just off the top of our heads. In this session, we will define what the buzz is about electrification, and then examine the obstacles (both real and perceived). Lastly, we’ll lay out a practical path to electrifying buildings. Focus will be on single family homes, multifamily buildings, and small commercial projects.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn what “electrifying” means in today’s building lingo
  2. Respond to the top arguments against electrification, including “it’s too expensive to operate” and “total carbon use is higher”
  3. Understand the top technical challenges of electrifying existing buildings and industry-standard new construction
  4. Identify next steps to thoughtfully evaluate electrification for your next project
