Welcome to Beneficial Electrification!

Welcome to the Beneficial Electrification Web site! On this Web site you will find resources and information that explains and supports the concept of “Beneficial Electrification.”

The wise use of electricity, Beneficial Electrification, creates new and exciting opportunities to achieve key national economic and environmental goals. Advancements in electric technologies continue to create new opportunities to use electricity to improve our quality of life, while significant decreases in the greenhouse gas emissions of the electric sector simultaneously provide new environmentally beneficial opportunities through further electrification.

Beneficial Electrification offers an exciting opportunity where environmental benefit and economic progress are not mutually exclusive, but work together to build the low-carbon economy of the future.
