Cities like Petaluma, states like California and New York, and whole countries like the Netherlands are starting to phase out gas in their buildings. Director of the Building Decarbonization Coalition Panama Bartholomy will discuss the movement to get the fastest growing source of climate pollution in the world, natural gas, out of buildings.

He’ll cover:

  • What is wrong with gas
  • What the alternatives are
  • Why all-electric buildings of today are different than of the past
  • What policies and programs are coming to help you make the switch
