Over the past five years, VPIREF has released three major reports addressing the challenges and opportunities in determining Vermont’s energy future. These reports provided insights into the economic challenges and environmental impacts of energy use in Vermont and identified solutions that could help Vermont build a clean energy future.
Now, we’re releasing Clean Heat: Comfortable Homes,Affordable Future. This report builds on that theme by examining the energy fuel sources we use for heating. Clean Heat focuses on Vermont’s thermal fuel mix, inclusive of residential, commercial and industrial uses, and lays out the path Vermont can take to nearly eliminate fossil fuels by 2031.
