Kicking Carbon Out of Buildings - How Heat Pumps Will Lead the Decarbonization Revolution

Peter Rumsey, CEO of Point Energy Innovations September 13th @ 6:30pm


California is going through one of its most seismic shifts in building energy policy and design. The move towards full decarbonization of the building stock has started and the policy, technical and financial implications are being developed under our feet.  We will share how heat pumps and other forms of electric heating can displace our long time carbon sources of heat. These systems already available and many are cost effective today.  Come discuss this shift and how it will impact your building or construction project with one of the industry's leading experts, Peter Rumsey of Point Energy Innovations.Learning
