A1 - Decarbonizing the electric grid

As cities around the world update their GHG reduction goals and policies to align with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5C target, the fundamental, underlying need is a decarbonized electrical grid. That’s because in addition to efficiency, the centerpiece of most decarbonization strategies is to electrify everything, from transportation, heating, and hot water, to cooking and industrial process uses. This represents a convergence of mature electric technologies (EVs, heat pumps, induction cooking) with an explosion of cheap renewable electricity – mostly wind and solar, but also geothermal.
