2019 Hot Water Forum

March 11 – 13, 2019

Hilton Nashville Downtown

Nashville, TN

ACEEE held it's annual 2019 Hot Water Forum, where experts shared the latest on technologies and techniques to improve how we make, distribute, and use hot water. In addition to improving water heating efficiency, these new tools can help us respond to the evolving energy paradigm that includes renewable energy and energy storage.

We kicked off this year’s Nashville location by featuring experts in the water heating industry in southern states. They discussed successful water heating technologies as well as the barriers and challenges for installing them in homes and commercial buildings.

Plenary Panelists


Homeowners and building occupants expect to receive a constant supply of hot water for showers, dishwashing, and laundry (and other uses). However, most people don’t realize that water heating water can be a complex and energy-intensive process!

Since 2008, the Hot Water Forum has brought together experts and novices from manufacturing, distribution (plumbing), electricity, gas and water utilities, government, and the research community to learn from each other and build momentum for market transformation. This Forum featured two full days of sessions presented by experts in the field on cutting-edge development.
