Kearney: Renewable Liquid Heating Fuel Best Path Forward in Northeast
‘More affordable and easier to implement than electrification.’
A comprehensive analysis of the home heating market in the Northeast by global management consulting firm Kearney confirmed that liquid renewable heating fuels represent the most prudent path forward in decarbonizing the region’s residential heating sector.
“Months of research conducted by Kearney demonstrates that heating oil-biofuel blending provides the most cost-effective and immediate path for NEFI members and their customers to reduce fossil energy use and carbon emissions,” said Neal Walters, a partner at Kearney. “Our findings show that this strategy is both more affordable and easier to implement than electrification for home heating in the Northeast.”
