Exelon Utilities is comprised of six regulated energy delivery utilities businesses: Atlantic City Electric, BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, PECO, and PEPCO. Exelon does not own electric generation, but they are one of the largest T&D utilities in the country, delivering electric and natural gas to approximately 10 million customers. Exelon has a long history of climate change action, having achieved its first EPA Climate Leaders goal in 2008, and followed with two GHG reductions goals since that time, one which included a specific 12% energy efficiency challenge achieved in 2012.
PORTFOLIO-WIDE LEADERSHIP COMMITMENTS
50% reduction in operations-driven Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2030
20% emissions reduction specifically from facilities from 2020 to 2030
EXELON CORPORATION IS PARTICIPATING IN THE FOLLOWING DOE PROGRAMS:
|Better Climate Challenge|
Exelon is bringing its newly announced Path to Clean GHG reduction goal to the DOE’s Better Climate Challenge. Announced in August 2021, Exelon has committed to reduce its operations-driven emissions 50% by 2030 and achieve Net-Zero by 2050. This operations-driven boundary focuses on Exelon's 170 sites and over 7,000 fleet vehicles, as well as its natural gas distribution systems and use of SF6 gas in its electrical equipment. In order to achieve this goal, Exelon plans to focus on efficient and clean energy use in its buildings, advance its vehicle fleet electrification to electrify 30% of its vehicle fleet by 2025 and 50% by 2030, invest in equipment and processes to reduce SF6 leakage from its systems, and modernize its natural gas infrastructure to minimize methane leaks and increase safety and reliability. Exelon is aiming to complete energy efficiency analyses and develop action plans for 50 of its highest opportunity buildings by 2030. This effort will guide a cost-effective energy-efficient building transition over time.
