Addressing climate change requires the transition away from fossil fuel combustion in buildings to efficient electric technologies. Policy advocacy for appropriate decarbonization pathways accompanies our electrification research and demonstration efforts including engagement in numerous regulatory and outreach and education venues.
Examples of AEA roles:
- Board members of the Building Decarbonization Coalition, and Energy Efficiency for All, both of which advocate for equitable and efficient electrification to help address our climate and housing crises.
- Key advisors to local governments developing all-electric policies that are beneficial to housing development.
- Under contract with a number of Community Choice Aggregators and local jurisdictions in the Bay Area to help multifamily developers overcome obstacles to all-electric new construction.
