ETCC Public Meeting

Friday, August 16, 2013 - 8:30am to 2:45pm

Transforming Residential Energy Efficiency

This ETCC meeting will focus on strategic and on-the-ground applications of emerging technologies and practices that are poised to make a significant impact in the residential energy efficiency sector. Featured speaker James Hillegas-Elting from Bonneville Power Administration will share how his organization is integrating R&D roadmapping with the organization’s Energy Efficiency Emerging Technologies (E3T) program to help “fill the pipeline” of energy-efficient products and services in the Pacific Northwest. Speakers from Global Green and KB Homes, alternative development and construction companies, respectively, will present emerging technologies projects that have been instrumental in pioneering the path to zero net energy homes in California. During the last portion of the meeting, California utility and state energy agency representatives will share findings from their latest emerging technology efforts focused in the residential sector.
