CONCORD, Mass., Aug. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Abode Energy Management (Abode), a leading provider of utility solutions to reduce carbon emissions from homes, partners with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) as a decarbonization consultant of homes on MassCEC’s Decarbonization Pathways Pilot. MassCEC enlisted Abode’s expertise in July 2021 to help develop an innovative pilot protocol, customer report, and resources to remove fossil fuels and improve energy efficiency in Massachusetts homes. In May, MassCEC signed a contract with Abode to perform the field deployment portion of the pilot. As a decarbonization consultant, Abode will begin testing the pilot protocol in select single-family homes and select triple-deckers.
The Decarbonization Pathways Pilot provides participants with a home decarbonization assessment that will evaluate all possible areas to reduce carbon emissions, including energy efficiency, electrical upgrades, heating and cooling, hot water, appliances, personal transportation and lawn care. The goal is to provide homeowners with a personalized, comprehensive decarbonization action plan.
“Abode is excited to work with MassCEC and other industry partners to move this pilot into the implementation phase. It is now necessary to successfully decarbonize Massachusetts homes and we are excited to be leading the way in this effort,” said Dave Boettcher CEO and founder. “We’re eager to get to people’s homes to get this important work started.”
Abode and MassCEC are committed to building a program that scales for homes and residents to help meet Massachusetts’ decarbonization goals, as required by An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy. The Decarbonization Pathways Pilot addresses this challenge by creating a test model for comprehensive consumer engagement and an actionable roadmap to help homeowners transition to a carbon-free footprint.
“MassCEC is excited to launch the Decarbonization Pathways pilot to help existing homes transition to clean energy. Abode has been a strong partner in developing an approach that meets homeowners where they are and provides homeowners with the support they need throughout the process. We look forward to our continued partnership with them,” said Peter McPhee, MassCEC’s Director of High-Performance Buildings.
