Webinar: Heat Pump Decision Support Tools

Heat pumps have garnered attention for their ability to utilize heat from ambient (air, water, ground) or waste heat sources, allowing companies to eliminate pollution from fossil fuel combustion and decrease energy costs across a range of geographies and industrial applications. To help close the knowledge gaps preventing heat pump deployment, the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC), along with energy specialists […]

Report Release Webinar: Industrial Electrification in U.S. States Report

On February 23, from 11 am – 12 pm ET, the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC) hosted a webinar launching the Industrial Electrification in U.S. States report, created by Global Efficiency Intelligence (GEI) and David Gardiner & Associates.

WEBINAR: The Renewable Thermal Vision Report – 11/10/2022

On November 10, 2022, the RTC held a webinar to release our Renewable Thermal Vision Report. The report examines priority industrial sectors in the U.S. and analyzes their thermal energy use by industrial process, temperature (high, medium, and low), and geography. Incorporating post-Inflation Reduction Act cost projections and estimates of technology availability, the report identifies five parallel pathways to decarbonize […]

RTC Summit 2022

Thank you to everyone who attended the third annual RTC Summit, October 20-21, 2022 in Washington, DC.  The Summit helped thermal energy users —industrial, commercial, and institutional— and solutions providers connect, learn, and collaborate. We engaged on a range of topics, including the US Inflation Reduction Act, third-party financing for renewable thermal projects, greenhouse gas accounting and market instruments, and […]

Webinar: Thermal Energy Storage: An Opportunity For Industrial Decarbonization

https://youtu.be/cd_UUlHrLbwThe RTC hosted a public webinar featuring our three sponsors that provide standalone thermal energy storage: Rondo Energy, Antora Energy, and Brenmiller Energy. These solutions decouple the availability of heat generated from renewable electricity, solar thermal, and other heat sources (such as waste heat) from when end users need it, bringing the decarbonizing of industrial processes and buildings into reach. […]

Webinar: RTC’s July 29th, 2022 Briefing to the House Manufacturing Caucus

Webinar: Renewable Thermal Energy – Turning up the Heat for Industrial Jobs, Competitiveness and Energy Security While Cutting Emissions

On April 27th, the RTC hosted a webinar on how decarbonizing thermal energy from the U.S. industrial and commercial sectors will reduce emissions, create jobs, and increase energy security and competitiveness. In the U.S., industrial emissions are the third largest source of emissions after electricity and transportation. Decarbonizing this sector is critical to meet our climate goals, and developing and […]

Webinar: The California RNG Standard– What it means for end-users and the future of the RNG market

On February 24th, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) set renewable natural gas (RNG) supply requirements for California utilities. Gas utilities are required to supply increasing amounts of RNG to residential and commercial customers; 12% RNG by 2030. This standard is the first of its kind in the United States. See the recording below for a conversation discussing what this […]
