Regulatory Solutions for Building Decarbonization

The old model of utility regulation is not conducive to an all-electric future and the scope of change needed is broad. To help inform that evolution, this report offers a framework for the comprehensive regulatory reforms required to transition to clean energy in the US building sector, along with more than 40 specific recommendations for action.


New York Can Meet Its Energy Needs without a New Pipeline

A prolonged battle over a natural gas pipeline in New York is presenting state officials with a critical decision point and an opportunity to establish themselves as national leaders in climate action. In contrast to utility National Grid’s proposal to build a $1 billion gas pipeline to serve customers in…


Getting the Facts Right: Clean, Electric Buildings Can Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions AND Save Money in New Construction

Replacing the burning of fossil fuels in our residential and commercial buildings with clean electricity is a crucial step to protecting public health and eliminating climate pollution. Multiple studies, including RMI’s The Economics of Electrifying Buildings and E3’s Residential Building Electrification in California, have shown that using efficient…
