ACEEE offers Energy Efficiency and Pollution Control Calculator
Over the next decade, a host of federal air regulations will impose restrictions on the emissions of multiple pollutants from stationary sources such as power plants and industrial facilities. These air regulations create a demand for low-cost and rapidly deployable emissions reduction measures.
To help meet this demand, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) recently released a new tool---an easy-to-use calculator that lets users get an idea of the costs and air quality benefits of some basic energy efficiency policies and allows them to compare those options with more piecemeal approaches to reducing air pollution. In the coming months, ACEEE will provide additional materials, information, and support to folks working on these issues.
