Beneficial and Equitable Electrification (BEE)
Focusing on cold regions and microgrid environments, the Beneficial and Equitable Electrification (BEE) Initiative seeks to understand the electrification of currently or previously non-electrified energy loads, such as transportation and heating, in order to harness local, sustainable, and cost-effective energy resources for all.
We will accomplish this mission by:
- Improving our understanding of applications and approaches in microgrid and cold regions;
- Improving our understanding of the costs and performance of existing systems,
- Investigating behavioral and socio-economic factors affecting adoption of BEE
- Maintaining and growing diverse stakeholder relationships through outreach and engagement.
