This document builds on the first European Commission (EC) Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Guidance Document, which laid out the overarching framework and nomenclature for the entire lifecycle of geological sequestration activities, including its phases, main activities, and major reg
The lifetime cost of wind energy is comprised of the investment cost, operation and maintenance costs, financing costs and annual energy production. This report seeks to understand the sources of wind energy cost differences among seven countries.
This full life-cycle model evaluates the energy and emission impacts of advanced vehicle technologies and new transportation fuels in the United States. The model allows users to evaluate various vehicle and fuel combinations.
This website provides a list of resources, including publications, as well as tools and data, on energy efficiency and clean energy implementation tactics. The information and resources were compiled as part of the State and Local Climate and Energy Program.
This calculator can be used to help educate stakeholders on the broad benefits of energy efficiency. It provides a simplified tool to demonstrate the business case for energy efficiency from the perspective of the consumer, the utility, and society.
The Surface Meteorology and Solar Energy website, sponsored by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), displays the solar radiation, wind speed, atmospheric pressure, air temperature, and humidity for a given location around the globe based on a latitude and longitude.
These interactive maps give estimates of the electricity that can be generated by grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) arrays without batteries and of the mean daily global insolation for any location in Canada.
This report examines how Smart Grid deployment will effect utilities, equipment and service providers, and policymakers, and goes on to suggest how each group should respond to the immense challenges and yet great opportunities that Smart Grid brings to the electric grid system.
This report discusses the value of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies for developing countries and identifies financial approaches for CCS demonstration. It also addresses a major barrier of CCS development: high-capital cost and energy penalties.
