Climate & Disaster Resilience
Homes are our primary shelter, but how resilient are they? The early affects of climate change are increasing the already worrisome risks of severe winter storms, wildfires, floods and landslides, and unpredictable natural hazards like earthquakes and tsunamis loom. All these events can happen in our region, and could cause critical damage to our built environment.
The 2016 Home Performance Conference will explore solutions that the Home Performance community can offer their customers to make their homes the most sustainable and resilient structures they can be.
The conference will also feature business development and technical sessions that draw from our industry’s leading thinkers, researchers, sales trainers and marketing consultants.
Some of the topics already proposed for discussion include:
(not all of these will be covered and most are still looking for speakers)
- PV with EVs and EE
- Strap it Down to Shelter in Place
- Choosing An Inverter – Storage vs Cheap On Demand Power
- Optimal HP Upgrades to Pair With PV
- Reducing A Home’s Exposure to Forest Fire Hazards
- Water Security
- Climate Change Hardships Exacerbating Existing Inequalities
- Aging in Place – Preparing a Home for the Long Haul
- A Home as a Community Resource for Community Capacity Building
