Report in Brief: Electrifying U.S. Industry: A Technology- and Process-Based Approach to Decarbonization

Posted on Posted in Fact Sheets

Thermal energy needs in industry, especially for heat, are a significant challenge for climate change mitigation efforts. Heat represents two thirds of all energy demand in the industrial sector, and one fifth of energy demand across the globe. However, only ten percent of this demand is met using renewable energy. In the United States, due […]
