Beneficial Electrification

What is Beneficial Electrification?

The application of electricity to end-uses that would otherwise consume fossil fuels, where doing so satisfies at least one of following conditions, without adversely affecting the others:

- save consumers money - improve product quality
- reduce [GHG] emissions - foster a more resilient grid.

Historically, the principal way to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the electric sector was to reduce energy consumption through energy conservation and energy efficiency, now there are increasing opportunities to reduce emissions through increased use of electricity by encouraging Beneficial Electrification.
