This paper advances the Global Change Analysis Model’s (GCAM) portrayal of chemicals to assess a full set of decarbonization options and identify specific actions that the organic chemical sector can take to reduce emissions.
The report looks at changes in Virginia’s approach to energy regulation in response to House Bill 206 and examines the causes and consequences of insufficient energy impact analyses on energy regulatory measures.
The report looks at the unique challenges facing states as they work towards decarbonization and try to balance lower emissions with the energy demands of households and corporations.
This paper explores the impact of price floors on cap-and-trade programs used to limit emissions of pollutants like CO2.
This study uses Haiku, an electricity planning model, to explore potential strategies for lowering the costs of meeting Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA) emissions targets, and finds flexibility in compliance is key to lowering ratepayer costs.
This report assesses direct air capture with carbon storage (DACCS) use relative to other carbon capture methods and examines its side effects for global energy, water, and land systems.
This study shows how the availability of direct air capture (DAC) affects the quantity of stranded assets – fossil fuels and infrastructure that remains unused – created under the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°-2°C.
This paper models the use of direct air capture and other negative transmission technologies (NETs) in China to understand the role of NETs in helping China and the international community achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
This report covers recent trends in Virginia’s electricity demand and then forecasts how Virginia’s electricity demand will change through 2050.
This report explores how smart grid capabilities can enable integration of clean energy resources, energy storage, and demand management technologies as Virginia's policymakers and stakeholders make the transition to clean energy.
