The Future of Electrification and What It Means for Clean Energy
June 26, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
There is great potential for electricity to replace liquid and solid fuels for transportation, industrial processes, agriculture, and heating and cooling. In April the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) published the U.S. National Electrification Assessment, which examines four possible pathways of how electrification could proceed in the coming years and decades. In the report’s most ambitious scenario, electricity’s share of total energy supply would rise from 19 percent today to 50 percent by 2050.
In this webinar, Francisco de la Chesnaye, Senior Program Manager at EPRI, presented the report’s findings and discussed the potential implications for state renewable energy initiatives. The presentation was followed by a Q&A with the audience.
This webinar was presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for the RPS Collaborative.
