Abstract

For decades, policymakers have viewed appliances that are fueled 'on site' by natural gas as environmentally preferable to electric appliances that rely on electricity generated at an off-site 'source,' such as at a coal or natural gas power plant. Several trends in energy generation and end-use technology, however, are changing the environmental value of using electric appliances to produce heat and hot water in buildings, requiring a more systems-based approach to energy efficiency tools and revisions to the methodology for calculating 'source' energy metrics.
