"Decreasing building sector emissions is a clean energy transition imperative," said
EPRI will focus on expanding GEBs in connected communities, using smart controls, sensors, and analytics to communicate with the grid and reduce energy consumption during periods of peak demand. This capability optimizes the comfort of building occupants, lowers utility bills, and reduces grid system costs. Energy efficiency and electrification measures can help reduce carbon emissions in existing buildings by as much as 40 percent, with reductions increasing as electricity generation becomes cleaner.
Specifically, EPRI will focus on enhancing energy efficiency and reducing carbon in affordable housing in communities across the country, working alongside emerging technology providers and local utilities. This project will build on EPRI's work in this space over the past decade.
