Abstract

In this paper, some ideas are proposed to establish the infrastructure of all-electric houses which are able to reduce primary energy consumption and $CO_2$ emission by adopting heat pump systems and induction heating cookers excluding the use of fossil fuel energy. This electrification concept is based on the consumption of only one type of energy which means electricity as secondary energy and the conventional fossil fuel energy is just consumed to generate electricity as primary energy. All-electric house is laid on the extension of the hydrogen economy in a long-term viewpoint so that the effectiveness of this new conceptual house is estimated analyzing the reduction of $CO_2$ emission. In this analysis, the balance of electricity supply and demand is considered including the construction of new power plants by renewable energy such as nuclear, IGCC and fuel cell because decarbonization is an essential element of hydrogen technology and economy and this action is accomplished in both supply and demand side of electricity. The results are able to contribute to develop various useful hydrogen policies and strategies and some detail researches are required previously to make the best application of this new conceptual house.
