In July 2020, ACEEE hosted its 12th Hot Water Forum virtually with over 230 attendees. Over the four days, 16 breakout sessions were presented on the smartest, most cost-effective way to improve the efficiency of hot water systems, the second-largest energy user in the home. In addition, we explored the intersection between hot water systems and important issues like equity and decarbonization.
ACEEE thanks our sponsors and attendees for their support and encouragement in making our first virtual forum a great success. We also wish to thank the Hot Water Forum Steering Committee and the 60+ presenters and moderators whose commitment in time and preparation were greatly appreciated.
The forum brought together a diverse group of equipment and component manufacturers; water, gas, and electric utility professionals; local, state, and federal agency personnel; energy efficiency program planners, operators, and evaluators; plumbers and installers; policymakers; NGOs; engineers, and consultants.
