EPRI study finds that a consumer-driven increase in electrification provides lower cost, less energy use and fewer emissions

“A new report by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) concludes that increased use of electric vehicles and increasing customer choice coupled with an expanded array of attractive electricity-powered technologies will help improve U.S. energy efficiency while reducing emissions in concert with substantial economic growth over the next three decades.

The study found that under each scenario, economy-wide electrification and technology advances led to reductions in energy consumption and emissions driven by electrification and efficiency gains. Natural gas use increases across all four scenarios. Carbon capture and storage becomes an essential technology for natural gas use to continue to grow in the scenarios that assume a future carbon price.”
