Join the MIT Energy Initiative and the MIT Industrial Liaison Program for a session on Decarbonizing buildings on Wednesday, February 24, 10:00 am-12:00 pm EST.

The construction and operation of buildings account for more than 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, dramatically reducing emissions from new and existing buildings globally is central to any emissions mitigation strategy. As the eighth session of the Energy Innovation series, this webinar features four leading MIT researchers to discuss a variety of pragmatic and more visionary options.

Speakers include:

• Christoph Reinhart on subject framing and building retrofit opportunities
• Caitlin Mueller on reducing embodies energy with a novel structure
• Les Norford on advanced heat pumps
• Yang Shao-Horn on the future of building energy
• With introduction and moderated Q&A by Robert Stoner
