Heating buildings by burning fossil fuels causes significant emissions of greenhouse gases. Many states already recognize the need to move away from this and have established climate action goals to help.

ASHRAE, with support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), has developed a series of 17 webinars designed to engage and educate all stakeholders involved in community heat pump system design and implementation. The webinars, bearing 1.5 continuing education credits each, are free.

The ASHRAE / NYSERDA Community Heat Pump Systems Webinar Series is divided into five relevant topic sections. Click on any of the topics to learn more and register.
