Water Efficiency - Water Conservation


    At this year's virtual 14th Hot Water Forum, ACEEE hosted a record breaking 265 attendees who participated in three days of presentations on what's next in the hot water industry including the latest technologies, policies, and programs that help shape building codes, spur workforce development, advance equity, and address climate goals.  

    ACEEE’s Hot Water Forum is the only national conference focused exclusively on water heating, the second largest use of energy in residential and multifamily homes. Attendees had the opportunity to connect with industry leaders, advocates, startups, and other stakeholders as this tight-knit community.
