Mighty Energy is proud to sponsor this year’s Built Green Conference on September 14th! A great way to end the summer, this event brings together professionals throughout the green building industry. The day includes sessions, speakers, and boundless opportunities to learn and connect with others excited about sustainability. This year’s keynote speaker, Alan Durning of the Sightline Institute, will discuss the intersections of green building, affordability, equity, and building policy/zoning. We’re also excited to announce that Mighty Energy will be hosting a conference session this year!
Heat – It’s Not Just Your Grandfather’s Forced Air Anymore!
This will be an interactive panel discussion on various types of efficient heat and their applications, moderated by our very own, Laura Elfline. From infrared on your ceiling, to radiant floors and heat pumps, industry experts will discuss the best solutions for many situations:
Is a heat pump really the most efficient heat source? Is it cost effective to put radiant floors in remodels? Why put heaters on the ceiling if hot air rises? If you’ve ever wondered about these questions, this session is for you! Our region has a goal of being carbon neutral by 2050. To accomplish this goal we need to complete multitudes of deep green energy new construction and retrofits in our existing residential and commercial building stock. Heating systems are a major factor when it comes to green construction and retrofits, and builders and designers need to stay abreast of the best energy efficient solutions for different situations. Eco-friendly heating solutions are not one-size-fits-all. Remodels often require a completely different heating system from newly-built homes, which are in turn, fully distinct from multi-family projects. In an expert panel compromised of professionals in the breadth of efficient heating solutions we will look at the variety of options for efficiently and effectively staying comfortable and the newest innovations in the marketplace, how to utilize new solutions as standalone or hybrid solutions, how systems perform in a variety of scenarios, and will discuss the best applications for each solution, along with available rebates. Panelists will also share case studies of winning and lasting applications that made a difference for their clients and the community. We hope to see you there!
