Title: Electrification of buildings and industry in the United States: Drivers, barriers, prospects, and policy approaches

Abstract

The report offers several use cases and case studies of electrification in buildings and industry: air source heat pumps for space heating, zero net energy buildings, electric water heaters and demand response, electric arc furnaces, and electric boilers. Finally, the report suggests several areas for further research to better understand and advance beneficial electrification.
