The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has released a new online tool to help people get an idea of the costs and air quality benefits of some basic energy efficiency policies and compare those options with more piecemeal approaches to reducing air pollution.

 “The tool is 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,” wrote Sara Hayes, Senior Manager and Researcher of Policy and Utilities, in a ACEEE blog post on February 14, 2013.“In the coming months, we will provide additional materials, information, and support to folks working on these issues. We invite you all to keep an eye on our evolving web page and let us know what else you would find useful.”

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, ACEEE says. These air regulations create a demand for low-cost and rapidly deployable emissions reduction measures and energy efficiency proves to be the least-cost resource when compared with new generation.

In the coming months, ACEEE will provide additional materials, information, and support to folks working on these issues.
