The Kleinman Center for Energy Policy reports on Faculty Affiliate of the Energy Institute, Lucas Davis, discussing the cost of electrifying home heating, the top source of energy demand, and carbon emissions in American homes.

“U.S. households burn 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas each year for home heating. That’s the carbon dioxide equivalent of having 40 million cars on the road. So this is a huge sector for carbon dioxide emissions.”
