(This is the second in a series of EAEI Tools Seminars.)
What technical resources are available through EETD's Energy Analysis and Environmental Impacts (EAEI) groups? Come look for collaboration opportunities, learn about innovative approaches, and better understand activities outside your own group.
EAEI develops and makes available a wide range of tools, models, software, and data resources to inform and assist policymakers, support innovation in industry, and advance the impact of research in laboratories and academia.
Tools presented in this seminar:
1. LBNL Benefits Calculator Model (BC Model) - Quantify the impacts of EE, DR, and/or DG on utility shareholders (reported as earnings and ROE impacts) and utility customers (reported as customer bills and rates). Can also assess the resource costs and benefits of various portfolios of EE, DR, and/or DG. (Presenter: Andy Satchwell)
2. LBNL Energy Efficiency Revenue Analysis (LEERA) - Quantifies the amount of self-financing (i.e. financing for efficiency from revenues created by the same efficiency improvements) available for appliance efficiency incentive programs. Results are country-specific and appliance specific. (Presenter: Anand Gopal)
3. National Impact Analysis (NIA) - Assess aggregate impacts at the national level, as measured by the net present value of total consumer economic impacts and the national energy savings, of potential efficiency standards for appliances and commercial equipment. (Presenter: Helcio Blum)
4. Policy Analysis Modeling System (PAMS) - Provides robust techno-economic analysis to support Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling programs ((Presenter: Virginie Letschert)
5. Benchmarking and Energy Saving Tool for Low Carbon Cities (BEST Cities) - Provides officials a comprehensive perspective on their local energy and carbon performance. Recommends city authorities with strategies to achieve energy savings and citywide CO_ emissions reduction. (Presenter: Gang He)
