Synapse Energy Economics released a new report today on the opportunities and challenges for decarbonizing heating in California buildings. Our study, commissioned by the Natural Resources Defense Council, addresses the fact that California’s buildings are responsible for 25 percent of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions. More than half of those come from combustion furnaces and water heaters.
