New England’s Winter Electricity Challenges Call for a Clean Energy Solution

Accelerating Energy Justice in Building Decarbonization

The Northeast must seize the opportunity to dramatically reduce residential emissions and advance energy justice goals. The reason is simple: the 25% highest-emitting homes account for more than half of residential emissions in every New England state. Acadia Center outlines key strategies for targeting super-emitting homes for comprehensive retrofits, which can help states reach their greenhouse gas reduction targets while reducing energy burdens and fostering energy justice.

The Future Is Electric

In this report, Acadia Center confirms that electrifying the building sector and weatherizing homes is beneficial to all New Jerseyans. It makes buildings healthier and safer while greatly reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the state and saving money on energy bills. Commissioned by New Jersey Conservation Foundation, the report outlines the fact that while New Jersey is making strides toward clean energy, much more is possible. “The Future is Electric,” authored by Director of Policy, Amy Boyd, and Ben Butterworth, Senior Manager, Climate and Energy Analysis shows that, when combined with weatherization, New Jerseyans will save money and improve local health by electrifying their homes.
