Towards increased policy relevance in energy modeling

Description: Historically, most energy models were reasonably equipped to assess the impact of a subsidy or change in taxation, but are often insufficient to assess the impact of more innovative policy instruments. We evaluate the models used to assess future energy use, focusing on industrial energy use. We explore approaches to engineering-economic analysis that could help improve the realism and policy relevance of engineering-economic modeling frameworks. We also explore solutions to strengthen the policy usefulness of engineering-economic analysis that can be built from a framework of multi-disciplinary cooperation. We focus on the so-called ''engineering-economic'' (or ''bottom-up'') models, as they include the amount of detail that is commonly needed to model policy scenarios. We identify research priorities for the modeling framework, technology representation in models, policy evaluation and modeling of decision-making behavior.

Supply and Demand For Energy in the United States by States and Regions, 1960 and 1965 (In Four Parts): 4. Petroleum and Natural Gas Liquids

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing state and regional supply and demand data. As stated in the introduction, "the primary purpose of this study is to provide, on a state-by-state basis, petroleum and natural gas liquids industry data that can be (1) integrated into state and regional energy balances by source, form, and consumer sectors, and (2) used to determine interstate and inter-regional energy flows" (p. 1). This report includes maps, tables, and illustrations.

Green Power Marketing in the United States: A Status Report (Ninth Edition)

Description: Voluntary consumer decisions to purchase electricity supplied by renewable energy sources represent a powerful market support mechanism for renewable energy development. Beginning in the early 1990s, a small number of U.S. utilities began offering ''green power'' options to their customers. Since then, these products have become more prevalent, both from traditional utilities and from marketers operating in states that have introduced competition into their retail electricity markets. Today, more than half of all U.S. consumers have an option to purchase some type of green power product from a retail electricity provider. Currently, more than 600 utilities, or about 20% of utilities nationally, offer green power programs to customers. These programs allow customers to purchase some portion of their power supply as renewable energy--almost always at a higher price--or to contribute funds for the utility to invest in renewable energy development. The term ''green pricing'' is typically used to refer to these utility programs offered in regulated or noncompetitive electricity markets. This report documents green power marketing activities and trends in the United States.
