You Can't Have One Without The Other!
All across the country, co-op, public power and investor-owned electric utilities are moving forward with Beneficial Electrification (BE) and Building Decarbonization efforts intended to reduce overall GHG emissions from the residential built environment. The recently released E3 study projects emissions reductions of 80-90% by 2050, primarily attributed to the ‘greening of the grid’ and the advancement of heat-pump technology for heating, cooling and water heating. Looking at both new construction and retrofit, electrification can not only cut emissions, but also “can lead to consumer capital cost savings, bill savings and life-cycle cost savings, in many circumstances.” Hear from electric utilities large and small about the BE and Bldg DeCarb efforts currently underway and gain a better understanding of this important opportunity.
