This is an Executive Summary for EPRI Report 1018871. This study addresses the potential for expanding end-use applications of electricity to save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. The focus is on converting residential, commercial, and industrial equipment and processes — existing or anticipated — from traditional fossil-fueled end-use technologies to more efficient electric technologies. This study serves to update and extend the work done in a 1991 EPRI study entitled Saving Energy and Reducing CO2 with Electricity (CU-7440). A key objective of the study is to inform utilities, electric system operators and planners, policymakers, and other electricity sector industry stakeholders in their efforts to develop estimates of the impacts of fuel conversion programs.
