We Need to Talk About Your Gas Stove, Your Health and Climate Change
Americans love their gas stoves. It's a romance fueled by a decades-old "cooking with gas" campaign from utilities that includes vintage advertisements, a cringeworthy 1980s rap video and, more recently, social media personalities. The details have changed over time, but the message is the same: Using a gas stove makes you a better cook.
What We Do
Facilitating Stakeholder Communication and Collaboration, including State-level dialogues and initiatives.
Our state-level meetings have engaged over 1,000 in-person stakeholders in a collaborative dialogue to promote the benefits of end-use electrification.
Targeted Research & Development Facilitation and Support.
Our ongoing research efforts bring new understanding to topics ranging from grid-interactive appliances (such as water heaters) and dual fuel space heating systems to electric grain drying and electric forklifts.
Market Research, Education, and Toolkits.
Our market research is helping to craft messages that are inclusive to the diverse stakeholders and programs that are effective in local communities.
