Hosted by Renewable Energy Vermont
As we strive for 100% clean energy in Vermont, we need a holistic vision that includes multiple, synergistic technologies. Geothermal and other kinds of thermal energy networks can be one part of the solution. Known as electrification’s best friend, these systems can help to balance electric loads and shave peaks year-round. Thermal networks are a great complement to other renewable resources and are close to net zero when paired with solar.
Join us to learn more about thermal networks as an electrification strategy and get a preview of a new case study on Colorado Mesa University's 12-year-old system that has never once used its gas backup. Speakers will identify key opportunities, IRA incentives, and the kinds of businesses needed to help Vermont take advantage of the many benefits of thermal energy networks.
