  • Projections of Global Emissions of Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases in 2050

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2009
    Objective: 

    Emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases are currently covered under the Montreal Protocol, which focuses on ozone-depleting substances such as CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) and HCFCs (hydrochlorofluorocarbons) and under the Kyoto Protocol, which controls emissions of HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons), PFCs (perfluorocarbons) and SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride). This study bridges the gap between political regimes and their reporting systems by giving an overview of banks and emissions of all fluorinated gases in 2005 and projections of banks and emissions of fluorinated gases in 2050.

    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2009

    This report provides an analysis of the impacts of national legislation for appliance and equipment minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and energy labeling to determine the effectiveness of the legislation. The analysis was conducted in 2009 for Australia and New Zealand.

  • Geothermal Exploration Policy Mechanisms: Lessons for the United States from International Applications

    Geothermal Exploration Policy Mechanisms: Lessons for the United States from International Applications

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, May 1, 2014

    This report analyses policy mechanisms employed internationally to encourage exploration for geothermal resources, and it assesses their potential applicability to the U.S. geothermal market. The study focuses on five of the policy types that are most relevant and applicable to the U.S. market and political context for the exploration and confirmation of conventional hydrothermal (geothermal) resources in the United States: drilling failure insurance, loan guarantees, subsidized loans, capital subsidies, and government-led exploration.

  • Appliances Get Smart: But how and when?

    Appliances Get Smart: But How and When?

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, February 1, 2014

    The paper reviews reports on an analysis of smart appliances and reviews different types of appliance “smartness.” It reviews smart appliance standardisation in Japan, the United States, Europe, Australia and China, and the development of relevant standards by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The paper also outlines current and future implications of smart appliances on appliance energy efficiency policy.

  • Ridesharing Institute (Website)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, February 1, 2012

    The Institute seeks to help communities make better use of the empty seats in existing cars, vans, and buses (and so reduce the amount of traffic and therefore also reduce the excess consumption of energy, greenhouse gas emissions, the number of traffic accidents, the negative health impacts, the demand for expanded infrastructure, the amount of personal time wasted, and the negative economic impact caused by traffic congestion) through increased ridesharing.

  • Incorporation of Demand-Side Management (DSM) Measures into Network Planning: Research Report No. 3

    Incorporation of Demand-Side Management (DSM) Measures into Network Planning: Research Report No. 3

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, October 1, 2008

    This multinational research project report investigates demand-side management (DSM) measures that may provide viable alternatives to augmentation of electricity networks and also provide network operational services. The objectives of this subtask are: 1) to describe the interaction between network-driven DSM and the power market structures and regulatory regimes of the participating countries; 2) to identify and describe the network planning process for each country; and 3) to develop methods for modifying planning processes for DSM inclusion.
