Why GEBs?

0 million tons per year

Reduction in CO2 emissions per year by 2030 from national GEBs adoption*

0 medium-sized coal plants

Equivalent CO2 emissions reductions from national GEBs adoption*

0 million cars

Equivalent CO2 emissions reductions from national GEBs adoption*

Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs) are becoming an important resource for the electric grid in the United states. By reducing and shifting the timing of electricity consumption, GEBs could decrease CO2 emissions by 80 million tons per year by 2030.
