Reducing HVAC GHG Emissions: Electrification & Decarbonization

On-demand Until December 9, 2021

Duration:60 minutes


Over the past decade, buildings have become more energy-efficient, heat pump performance has improved and the electric grid has become greener. These actions have led to significant reductions in emissions from building electricity consumption. However, over the same time period, building emissions from burning natural gas, fuel oil and propane have remained relatively flat.

In order to achieve deep decarbonization, buildings must address both electricity and direct fossil fuel combustion. Using intelligent building equipment is the first step in increasing energy efficiency and digitalization. This step is critical for the transition to a decarbonized, smart electric grid.

Join us as Mark Lessans, director of regulatory and environmental affairs from Johnson Controls, discusses the implications of electrification and decarbonization in the HVAC industry.
