Webinar: An Introduction to Thermal Energy Networks (TENs)

Wednesday, September 20th, 2023

Virtual Session

12:00 - 1:00 pm CT

About the Presentation:

Join the Building Decarbonization Coalition (BDC) to learn about the exciting potential of thermal energy networks (TENs) and discover the potential they have in the state of Texas. The Building Decarbonization Coalition (BDC) aligns critical stakeholders on a path to transform the nation’s buildings through clean energy, using policy, research, market development and public engagement. The BDC and its members are charting the course to eliminate fossil fuels in buildings to improve people’s health, cut climate and air pollution, prioritize high-road jobs, and ensure that our communities are more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

TENs provide an opportunity to reimagine how we heat and cool our homes, free from fossil fuels, at scale. Instead of gas pipes under our streets, similar pipes can be filled with water, and instead of boilers and furnaces in our buildings, we can have heat pumps. The heat pumps connected to the water loop in the streets, can transfer heat in and out of buildings, keeping us warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
