The movement to electrify our buildings is growing more rapidly than ever. Building electrification aims to eliminate the demand for fossil fuels in our buildings by replacing fossil-fuel-reliant equipment with equipment that uses electricity. In many areas, the energy supplied by the grid will soon be cleaner than the energy supplied by natural gas. And many cities and states are working toward a 100% renewable grid — once that is achieved, their buildings’ systems, like heating and hot water, will be powered by carbon-free, renewable energy.
