Building Electrification and Transformation Accelerator (BETA): Commercial Buildings Pilot
Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC)
The Building Electrification and Transformation Accelerator (BETA): Commercial Buildings Pilot is a MassCEC initiative that seeks to surface and prove out the technical, implementation, and financial models to serve as the basis for electrification and decarbonization of the commercial buildings sector. The Program will develop and pilot a decarbonization assessment process for commercial buildings approximately 20,000 square feet in size and larger and multifamily residential buildings with 15 or more units. The Program will provide free in-depth building audits to support commercial building owners in planning electrification and decarbonization retrofits. These custom plans will be utilized to create a robust set of market resources that support pathways towards full commercial building electrification.
The end goal of each decarbonization plan developed under this pilot is to lay out the steps to eliminate the use of fossil fuels from the building, meeting interim targets and making the building “2050-Ready.” Plans will demonstrate replicable, cost-effective approaches to electrifying commercial buildings, including both “all at once” retrofits and “over time” approaches that leverage natural equipment replacement cycles. Through this program, MassCEC aims to create and test an assessment framework that is comprehensive yet also flexible enough to address the wide variety in the commercial building stock.
