Electric Water Heaters Could be a Carbon Cutter for Multifamily Buildings

Published by Electrical Contractor Magazine: Electrification of buildings is emerging as the new front in the fight against global warming, and in that effort, apartment buildings could take a leading role. A new report focuses on the potential for significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions specifically from multifamily buildings that convert their water-heating systems from gas to electric.

“Increasing Sustainability of Multifamily Buildings with Heat Pump Water Heaters” analyzes the economics and potential benefits of replacing fossil fuel water heaters with heat pump water heaters in multifamily buildings. Authored by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, Washington, D.C., and New Buildings Institute, Portland, Ore., the study was published Nov. 18, 2021.
