It’s Electrifying: Converting Heating Systems
December 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
The second installment of our It’s Electrifying series explores the promise and practical barriers to electrifying heating systems in multifamily buildings.
As buildings of the future begin to be powered by electricity, heating plants might need to move out of the basement and instead be distributed throughout the building via heat pumps.
How do architects design for this? What are the implications for tenant-landlord relationships and building operations? Do buildings have the necessary electrical infrastructure? Attendees will learn the latest thinking on heat pump technology and explore the opportunities and challenges for new and existing buildings.
This educational series builds upon Urban Green’s 2017 conference, It’s Electrifying: Exploring NYC’s Climate Plan to Electrify Buildings, which examined when building electrification might happen, which technologies will arise, and who will do the work.
