In this free webinar, we will explore how we can remake buildings into clean and flexible energy resources by combining energy efficiency, electrification, and demand flexibility with smart technologies and electric appliances. These solutions help reduce peak electric loads, which will be essential to providing a reliable clean energy system.

- As buildings electrify how will they affect overall electricity demand?

- What are the smart technologies that will enable buildings to use less energy especially at peak times?

- How do buildings communicate with and respond to the needs of the electrical grid?

- How will buildings and vehicles interact in the smart grid of the future? Panelists:
