Regulatory Implications of Building Electrification


Regulatory Implications of Building Electrification

The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP), and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) are convening a panel discussion the morning of Tuesday, February 12, 2019. This breakfast event will be held at the Washington Renaissance Hotel.

 There is a growing recognition of the need to decarbonize energy uses in U.S. buildings that currently rely on natural gas, propane, and heating oil. Beneficial electrification of these end uses represents a promising decarbonization opportunity, but widespread electrification is hindered by regulatory and policy barriers. Join ACEEE, RMI, and RAP for a breakfast discussion of the regulatory challenges posed by widespread building electrification, and new approaches that regulators can take to ensure that this is an affordable, equitable and truly beneficial transition. 

This breakfast will run from 7:30 - 8:40am in Meeting Room 2.


Chairman Jeff Ackermann, Colorado PUC

Commissioner Abigail Anthony, Rhode Island PUC

Commissioner Matt Schuerger, Minnesota PUC

Mike Henchen, Rocky Mountain Institute

Moderator: Rachel Gold, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy

Presenter: Jess Shipley, Regulatory Assistance Project

Topics will include:

Utility business model implications, including incentives for decarbonization and implications for gas utilities

Rate design considerations for all-electric customers

Cost-effectiveness metrics for beneficial electrification and prohibitions on fuel-switching

Energy efficiency resource standards and the potential need for a “next generation EERS”

Stranded cost risks associated with natural gas infrastructure
