Regulations keep coming, and facility managers and building owners can sometimes struggle to keep up. ACEEE has a new tool seeking to assist with some of the calculations that go into meeting regulation requirements.
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 ants and industrial facilities. 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.
To help meet these demands, today ACEEE is releasing a new tool---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.
