Beneficial electrification (or strategic electrification) is a term for replacing direct fossil fuel use with clean electricity in a way that reduces overall emissions and energy costs, such as conversion to electric vehicles and heat pumps. This workshop will look at the state’s aggressive total energy goals and Vermont’s progress toward meeting them. It will also explore the longterm implications of electrification, and the key role of efficiency, distributed renewable energy and energy storage for achieving beneficial electrification. Also, hear how one Vermonter has made the whole-lifestyle transition to 100% renewable energy for meeting their total energy needs.

Green Energy Times editor Nancy Rae Mallery calls the VECAN Conference “Vermont’s best renewable energy event.” We recommend that everyone consider attending.

This year’s conference will again be held at beautiful Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, Vermont. It will be on Saturday, December 1st from 9 AM to 4:30 PM. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
