Bringing Clean Energy Home: Unlocking Innovation and Policy to Align US Household Energy Use with Ambitious Climate Targets A report from the Rocky Mountain Institute

Over the next decade, we face an opportunity to radically change how energy is produced, delivered, and used across the economy, including within our homes. In the United States, household-level energy decisions drive 40 percent of energy-related carbon emissions. Positioning households to lead on decarbonizing our economy can enable rapid emissions reductions and help improve critical human needs including health, resilience, and equity of access to energy services.

RMI’s report Bringing Clean Energy Home outlines the fundamental shifts that must take place to deliver these benefits and bring residential carbon emissions in line with climate goals.
