Vermont’s Global Warming Solutions Act requires that greenhouse gas emissions from thermal end uses (heating and hot water) be reduced by at least 15% below 2018 levels by 2025 and then by 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050. This report, published by Energy Action Network, describes a performance-based program, the Clean Heat Standard, that would create a path for Vermont’s heat suppliers and local enterprises to work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fossil heating costs over time.
