Course details
Climate change, health and wellbeing, natural resource depletion, consumer preferences, investor demand - these are key issues that are impacting how we operate and upgrade existing buildings in our towns and cities. A key challenge across all of them is how we move away from traditional solutions to deliver more sustainable and higher performing buildings. 

If we are to significantly reduce operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the built environment and meet net zero carbon goals, it is crucial that existing buildings undergo a transition to be fossil fuel free, primarily by eliminating the use of natural gas. Electrifying existing buildings now will ensure they are future proofed for a decarbonised world.

Watch this webinar as we celebrate the release of our Practical guide to electrification for existing buildings which outlines the steps involved in electrifying an existing building or portfolio and the types of technologies that can be used today to replace natural gas systems with electric solutions. If you are a building owner, developer, facilities manager, consultant or buildings professional this guide is for you.

The webinar will include:
An overview of the guide
Understanding the case for electrification
Seven key issues to consider when electrifying
Common myths and barriers
Panel discussion with our technical partner on the value of the guide and impact for industry
