Six of One: GHG Trade-offs in Controls Strategies

By Daniel Jordan on Jan 19, 2022 10:00:00 AM

How much greenhouse gas is in our electricity? This question isn’t just academic for those of us working to decarbonize buildings. In applications that use some combination of fossil fuel and electricity—which is common!—controls strategies for decarbonization depend on being able to make GHG comparisons between fossil fuels and electricity. These scenarios play out in day-to-day commissioning work.
