Start Smart will offer residential new construction professionals the opportunity to learn the latest information on reliable, cost-effective, energy-efficient technologies and incentives with the goal of smoothly integrating them into the home building process. Attendees will connect with others already successfully implementing these technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of homes while making them more affordable to operate. With three concurrent tracks, attendees will have the opportunity to choose the sessions that are most applicable to their business and future projects while engaging with multiple experts.



Through this workshop there will be three concurrent tracks where attendees will:

  • Learn more about how clean energy solutions improve home performance and customer satisfaction.
  • Understand how to maximize incentives to improve project economics.
  • Engage with other industry professionals to ensure install quality and compatibility through best practices and case studies.
  • Build partnerships through networking for future projects.

The core focus will be on air source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, solar PV, and solar thermal for new construction projects. All technologies discussed are cost-effective, readily deployable, and will continue to play a larger role in the Massachusetts marketplace.
