Webinar Information:

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and Opinion Dynamics, the third-party evaluator of the Building Initiative for Low-Emissions Development (BUILD) and Technology and Equipment for Clean Heating Initiative (TECH) Programs, invite you to attend an upcoming webinar to learn about the BUILD Program and the BUILD Baseline Market Assessment report.

The BUILD Program, administered by the California Energy Commission (CEC), offers technical assistance and incentives to building owners and developers to encourage the construction and major retrofit of new low-income, all-electric housing. BUILD staff will provide a brief overview of the incentives and services available to applicants and an update on the current status of the BUILD Program.

The forthcoming BUILD Baseline Market Assessment report, conducted by Opinion Dynamics, surveyed developers, architects, engineers, and other market actors active in the California new construction sector to assess existing market conditions relevant to the BUILD Program. This portion of the presentation provides an overview of market size, summarizes market perceptions of all-electric design and electrification equipment, and characterizes the key cost, technical assistance, and training considerations related to the future of low-emission residential new construction in California.
