Electrification Technical Assistance Program
The Electrification Technical Assistance Program provides extensive free technical assistance to architects, builders, developers, design engineers, contractors, and energy consultants to learn about all-electric building technologies and electric vehicle infrastructure.
The program aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by supporting new construction or retrofits, affordable or market-rate housing, and small or large projects to learn the latest techniques to meet new and emerging requirements and deliver safer, healthier buildings.
The following support is available to support electrification measures in building projects, including electric vehicle infrastructure:
- Recommended design approaches
- Design guide resources
- Energy model peer review
- Feasibility and performance analysis
Additional support is available to affordable housing projects:
- Design charrette facilitation
- Owner Project Requirements (OPR) or Request for Proposal (RFP) language adjustments
- Cost-benefit analysis
- Measurement and verification plan scoping
You may also call 650-429-8910 for a direct line to one of our technical experts. After a brief consultation with one of our experts, your project may enroll in the program by completing a Participation Agreement.
Past Event Recordings
Developer and Designer Roundtables
Developers and designers participated in online discussions of general building electrification strategies, individual technology design, and successful implementation practices. View the recordings below.
Contractor Technical Trainings
These technical trainings help prepare contractors for the rapidly growing wave of all-electric construction as new incentives and local requirements encourage all-electric installs. The below trainings cover design, commissioning, homeowner education, and incentive opportunities.
Building industry members who would like guidance on electrification of energy-consuming building systems are eligible for free technical assistance through the program.
