WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and the Beneficial Electrification League (BEL) have launched a free resource to help utilities and their customers go electric: the Beneficial Electrification Toolkit.
The Toolkit is a first-of-its-kind online compendium of resources that aims to help utilities and their customers manage the transition to increased electrification by guiding them through creating successful, accessible, and equitable programs.
Electrification is considered beneficial when it achieves at least one condition (without harming the others): saving consumers money, reducing emissions, improving quality of life, or strengthening the grid.
Beneficial electrification is accelerating as technologies such as heat pumps and electric vehicles improve and electric power becomes cleaner.
“The Beneficial Electrification Toolkit is a one-stop-shop that utilities can use to answer any of their electrification questions,” said EESI Executive Director Daniel Bresette.
“As a concept, beneficial electrification has moved rapidly into the lexicon, but now we need to fill in with details that can ensure these programs succeed and everyone benefits,” said BEL President Keith Dennis.
Set up as a step-by-step guide, the Beneficial Electrification Toolkit walks utility staff through the process of developing electrification programs for their customers.
The Toolkit also features successful case studies.
From technology explainers to program implementation, the Toolkit can help utilities create electrification programs for today and tomorrow. Explore the Toolkit at betoolkit.org.
Thank you to all of the donors who made this possible, especially The JPB Foundation, Energy Foundation, McKnight Foundation, and the Merck Family Fund.
