What Is Building Electrification?

Building electrification refers to the process of replacing fossil fuel-based systems such as boilers, furnaces, and water heaters with electric alternatives, typically powered by renewable energy sources. This can include things like electric heat pumps for heating and cooling, electric tankless water heaters, and induction cooktops.

Building electrification is important because it can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from buildings, which are a major source of both. It can also improve energy efficiency and lower energy costs for building occupants. Additionally, as more buildings are electrified, it can help increase demand for renewable energy and support the transition to a clean energy economy.
