From single-family homes to high-rise apartment buildings, developers are scrambling for efficient, fossil-free DHW options. Presenters will discuss older tech (like integrated, tank HPWHs) and newer tech (like CO2 systems that can work well in cold weather). There’s a lot left to learn, especially with the new tech, but we’ll present good case studies, bad case studies, and progress reports from many types of buildings and water heating systems. We will also hear about the new MassSave 0% interest loan options for heat pumps and the new all electric home incentives for both renovation and new construction.
