Meeting Time and Location: 

12-1:30PM CT


Public health practitioners, policymakers, and community advocates alike will have an opportunity to learn about the compelling evidence of the economic, environmental, and health benefits of heat pumps, which include more affordable energy, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved air quality, and avoided adverse health impacts.

Through appropriate laws, policies, and incentives, heat pumps can be an accessible tool for single-family and multi-family homes and other buildings in communities impacted most by poor air quality. Presenters will describe recent initiatives to rapidly expand adoption of heat pumps, including through innovative laws and policies, as well as opportunities for increased advocacy by public health practitioners and community health, and health equity advocates.
