EFG Supports State of Vermont with Greenhouse Gas Pathways Analysis

EFG, working in collaboration with the Cadmus Group, and Stockholm Environment Institute, has been supporting the State of Vermont in the analysis of pathways to reduce statewide greenhouse gas emissions to meet the requirements of the Global Warming Solutions Act. The Pathways indicate that a combination of a decarbonized electric grid, continued energy efficiency, electrification for buildings and transportation, and the select use of biofuels, enable meeting the 2030 and 2050 emissions reduction targets. The overall economic benefits of reduced imported fossil fuels and higher efficiency outweigh the costs for transitioning to a cleaner energy future. The research also highlights how program and policy design choices are important to ensure the transitions are done in just and equitable fashion. A selection of the reports and analyses prepared under contract with the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, are available below.
