About this course

Understanding the trajectory of Massachusetts’ energy policy will drastically change the way our homes are designed and built.

In this lesson, we will explore what electrification is and how it influences what technologies should be deployed in homes. Additionally, we will explore how onsite energy storage doesn’t just benefit local communities, but also the way in which it enables new homes to be resilient, fossil fuel-free, and self-generating.

Participants will:

  • Become familiar with the impact electrification will have on new construction projects
  • Understand how code changes and energy policy are expediting the improvement of home performance in MA
  • Learn the value of energy storage and its significance in allowing new construction projects to have no carbon footprint
