Accelerating To Zero: The Path To Electrification

About the event 

Join us October 17 for an in-person networking breakfast focused on electrification – a key component of any zero carbon transition plan. As we move toward zero carbon buildings, all new and existing buildings will rely on more sophisticated electrical systems.

Starting with a presentation on How Programs and Codes are Driving Electrification, this event will explore the need for electrification and building component innovations across heating and hot water systems and envelope improvements can help electrical grids meet increasing demands driven by zero carbon building.

Following the presentation, a panel of industry experts will discuss whether Canada is ready to electrify all buildings.
