ET22SWG0001 - Water Heating Market Study
This Emerging Technology (ET) study project is proposed to analyze & research natural gas water heating technology adoption trends in existing California Investor-owned utilities (IOUs) offered Energy Efficiency (EE) incentive programs, perform market research to understand technology adoption drivers and barriers, and provide actionable recommendations to improve program success. This project will cover both residential (single-family and multi-family) and commercial sector water heating systems will include gas storage water heaters, tankless water heaters, dual-fuel water heaters, water heating controls, hot water conservation measures (i.e., low flow showerheads, faucet aerators, etc..), and combination space & water heating systems. The research findings will be presented in the ET report template and will include several easy-to-understand charts and tables. This project aligns with Goal 1 of the 2022 GET Annual Research Plan.
