Keeping the (Decarbonized) Lights On: US Housing, Equity, and the Energy Transition



Event details

--> RSVP to this event


Because housing produces about one-fifth of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions, decarbonizing housing is a major focus of the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act and several other initiatives. In this talk, Carlos Martín, project director of the Center’s Remodeling Futures Program, will discuss the multiple–and often overlapping–approaches to decarbonizing housing: energy efficiency, electrification, and renewable energy. He’ll also discuss efforts to help policymakers develop strategies that harness the skills of the tradespeople who will do much of the needed work as well as efforts to address inequities in our current residential energy system.
