Emissions-reduction market opportunities for electrical and mechanical contractors
By Anthony Capkun
July 18, 2022 – How can mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractors capitalize on the Federal 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, which outlines an ambitious goal of reducing carbon emissions across the country by 40% by 2030?
That was the motivation behind a special panel discussion “The Road to 2030: Trades Contractors and the Federal 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan”, hosted by Electrical Business and HPAC magazines.
As an Addendum to that conversation, we invited subject matter experts Harold Ruckpaul and Pushpinder Rana of Eaton and Mitsubishi Electric Heating & Cooling, respectively, to join us for a follow-up discussion (WATCH BELOW).
Together, these experts lend their unique perspectives to the emissions reduction conversation, and help direct our skilled trades audiences to areas of opportunity.
Our discussion first establishes whether emissions reduction, net zero, etc., are “a thing” or just passing fancy From there, we delve into the education and training required to both install and sell the solutions of tomorrow, and what are Eaton and Mitsubishi doing to help ensure we have enough qualified, skilled tradespersons.
Our conversation concludes with Harold and Rana telling us where they see the greatest market opportunities for electrical and mechanical contractors and, not surprisingly, our panelists are pretty excited.
Harold serves as Director, Strategic Alliances, Electrical Engineering Services & Systems, with Eaton Corp., while Rana serves as Senior Manager, Commercial Products & Industry Relations, HVAC Division, with Mitsubishi Electric Sales Canada Inc.
