The 2024 Hot Water Forum (HWF) is the premier technical conference dedicated to efficiently producing, distributing, using, and reusing hot water. Since its inception in 2008, this two-day conference has brought together seasoned experts and newcomers to exchange knowledge, foster innovation, and help drive market transformation.
In addition, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) presents the second Hot Air Forum (HAF), focusing on decarbonizing space heating in buildings of all kinds through heat pumps. Both conferences will explore how these industries can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve grid resilience, and center equity.
The HAF will kick off the event in Atlanta from March 12 to 13, then transition to the HWF, March 13 to 14.
ACEEE invites professionals to submit up to two presentation topics by October 31. If your submission is accepted, you will be invited to present in a breakout session with similar topics. Presenters are limited to one presentation each.
Presentations can be submitted for consideration in up to two of the following tracks:
Equity and Workforce Development
- Energy Equity and Environmental Justice
- Workforce Development
Policies & Programs
- Decarbonization and Electrification
- Energy Codes and Equipment Standards
- Impact of Federal/State/Local Policies
- Utility Programs
- System Design Strategies
- Modeling, Simulations, and Equipment Sizing
- Safety Considerations
- Water Heating Technologies
- Space Heating Technologies
- Intersection of Space & Water Heating
ACEEE welcomes sessions on a variety of technologies (grid-connected, heat pumps, dual fuel, natural gas advances, tankless, combi), specific building types (commercial, multifamily, residential, existing buildings, new construction), and others.
The 2024 Hot Air and Hot Water Forums will be in-person events held at the Hilton Atlanta in Atlanta, and registration and accommodations will open in December. All presenters will be expected to register and attend in person.
