I recently had the opportunity to join a technical conference panel about electrification at FERC, where we primarily addressed the market and grid implications of building and transportation electrification.

In my pre-panel comments to FERC, I did not have a chance to address an important aspect of building decarbonization: the on-site carbon emissions vary a lot between buildings.

On January 5, 2017, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) released the 2017 Annual Energy Outlook (AEO). The final AEO 2017 contains projections of energy use from the electric power, residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation sectors through 2050 for the first time in AEO’s history. Publishing a new release just four months after the final AEO 2016, EIA has changed the way it produces its annual projections.
