Join ZEBx in this collaboration with B2E and featuring HRAI for our next Deep Emissions Retrofit Dialogue on this hot topic.
Are there simple solutions for going electric? We’re convinced that electrification doesn’t have to be complicated. This interactive dialogue will explore electrification solutions in single-family homes, rental apartments and small commercial buildings.
We want to hear what you have to say about this!
The Feb 2022 Deep Emissions Retrofit Dialogue is a collaboration with B2E and featuring HRAI.
- The Case for Electrification of (Part 9) Residential Homes
- Electrification Opportunities for MURBs
- Solutions for Small Commercial Buildings

What is B2E?
B2E is a new BC-based member-driven coalition working towards electrifying space heating and domestic hot water systems in BC, in pursuit of a province-wide shift to low-carbon buildings. Its purpose is to create opportunities for stakeholders to work collaboratively to identify and address barriers to electrification and take actions that contribute to a meaningful market shift to low carbon building electrification. B2E is a key initiative identified in the Building Electrification Road Map (BERM) and is supported by ZEBx.
