Advancing Electrification

Urban Green is launching a two-year electrification study. Supported by the Rosin Fund of the Scherman Foundation through a competitive grant process, Advancing Electrification will create a blueprint for scaling heat pumps in NYC's large multifamily buildings. In Year 1 we’ll develop priorities through stakeholder convenings and in-depth research; in Year 2, we will advance to implementation strategies, such as incentives and stakeholder education. We previewed the project at the October 2018 NYSERDA and Department of Public Service Heat Pump Forum, part of NY State’s effort to incorporate electrification into new energy efficiency initiatives.

Advancing Electrification builds on an impressive Urban Green body of work that started with 2012’s 90 by 50 report, which demonstrated that deep carbon reductions were possible by switching to renewable energy and using heat pumps for heating and cooling. Since then, we've built on those findings through additional research, educational events, and blogs, below.

We’re very excited about Advancing Electrification and look forward to keeping you apprised (and seeking your advice) throughout this critical project.
