How can safety professionals stay up-to-date on renewable energy resources like solar PV, heat pumps and electric vehicle charging?

The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is poised to expand the implementation of clean energy solutions and a widespread reduction in energy costs. Thoughtful and localized execution of this groundbreaking climate investment can propel us towards achieving emissions reduction targets, concurrently yielding economic, health, and equity benefits within our communities. As we deploy more technologies like solar energy, heat pumps, and electric vehicles, it’s important for local building officials to stay up-to-date and have the latest information on clean energy technology deployment and safety.
