Electricity as our quickest road to zero carbon.
About this Event
Join Solar Oregon, Forth, Community Energy Project and others for an evening dedicated to electrifying everything.
As part of Sustainable Building Week, we’ll be exploring the idea that electricity is the quickest and most realistic form of CO2 emission free energy. We’ll talk about how to switch household appliances and transportation to the most energy efficient electric form and finally how to provide that energy through renewables — ideally from local sources, like solar on our rooftops.
Solar Oregon will be presenting the “Average person’s guide to electrifying everything” and will be joined by Forth who will be presenting on electrifying transportation and Community Energy Project who will be talking about their work with heat pump hot water heaters.
This event is free and open to all.
Thanks to event sponsors Vacasa for hosting us in their Pearl Headquarters.
About Sustainable Building Week
October 14, 2019 kicks off the second annual Sustainable Building Week (SBW) an event-filled week from a cross section of Portland’s design professional organizations. The week will bring the best and brightest building professional organizations together to educate, connect and foster opportunities for future collaboration to Keep Portland Green. Whether its combating climate change, protecting our natural resources or investigating the increasing number of dangerous chemicals in our indoor spaces, the multitude of issues that need to be addressed require more attention by all of us.
Sustainable Building Week works to Keep Portland Green. SBW offers a week of events to break down siloed thinking to improve cross-disciplinary education, connectivity and future collaboration to promote sustainable practices and design across the city of Portland and beyond.
