May 25: Webinar: Industrial Electrification – Implications for State Utility Regulators

Join RTC Executive Director Blaine Collison and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) for a webinar on May 25 discussing the recent report Industrial Electrification in U.S. States

Achieving greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets will require innovative approaches to decarbonizing energy use across all sectors of the economy. The industrial sector’s demands for electricity and heat accounts for around one-fourth of U.S. energy use and emissions, yet emissions reductions have been harder to achieve than in the power generation sector. How can emissions-intensive industries leverage electrification to decarbonize? What impact will this have on grid reliability, energy costs, and emissions? And what can regulators do to reduce barriers for industrial customers who want to electrify? This webinar will share highlights from the report analyzing the electrification potential for 12 industrial subsectors across 20 states. Panelists will discuss emerging technologies, grid impacts, co-benefits, and recommendations for policymakers and regulators to facilitate industrial electrification.

Moderator: Hon. Tyler Huebner, Wisconsin

June 14: Webinar with NASEO: Renewable Thermal Vision and Industrial Electrification in U.S. States

Join the National Association of State Energy Officials’ (NASEO) State Industrial Working Group’s webinar on June 14 from 3 – 4 pm ET for deep dives into the Renewable Thermal Vision and Industrial Electrification in U.S. States reports.

RTC staff will outline the reports’ evaluations of how the U.S. can decarbonize industrial thermal energy use by 2050, as well as the associated policy and technical tools we have assembled to help states and industries achieve their economic competitiveness, emissions reduction, and environmental protection objectives.

RTC Summit 2023

Join the RTC community on October 19-20, at the Park Hyatt in Washington, DC for our fourth annual RTC Summit! The event will bring together large thermal energy buyers, renewable solutions suppliers, financiers, governments, and nonprofits committed to decarbonizing global thermal energy use.

This is the premier event worldwide focused on thermal energy decarbonization. Over two days, attendees will participate in panel discussions, present case studies, and connect through plenty of networking opportunities.
