Heat Pump Decision Support Tools

Many analyses, including the Renewable Thermal Vision Report, identify electric heat pumps as a critical opportunity to decarbonize low-temperature industrial heat generation, which accounts for 43% of total U.S. industrial thermal emissions. Heat pumps have garnered attention for their ability to utilize heat from ambient […]

Case Study: University of California Renewable Natural Gas/Biomethane Procurement

Together with direct electrification, energy efficiency, and renewable electricity projects, the University of California1 (the University or UC) is procuring biomethane to replace 40% of its natural gas needs. This biomethane procurement strategy is an integral part of the University of California’s plan to reach net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025.

Green Hydrogen Primer

To help energy users and policymakers better understand this rapidly evolving technology, this primer focuses on the application of green hydrogen for industrial process heat and provides a high-level analysis of both the potential and challenges of this technology. It is intended to enhance the knowledge of energy buyers, policymakers, and other key stakeholders and inspire deeper multistakeholder discussion and collaboration to ensure that green hydrogen plays an appropriate role.

Case Study: Diageo Distillery

When constructing a new distillery in Kentucky, Diageo decided to use electric boilers powered by a mix of 100% renewable wind and solar energy sources rather than conventional thermal processes. This choice — in addition to several sustainability features — resulted in significant avoided emissions […]
