Join Synapse Energy Economics and Robyn DeYoung from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on June 21st to learn about the Avoided Emissions and Generation Tool (AVERT). AVERT is an open-access tool built for EPA by Synapse to estimate the hourly emissions and generation benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy policies and programs. AVERT allows non-expert users to measure displaced HOURLY emissions of CO2, SO2, and NOX, and avoided generation mitigated by state or multi-state programs. Stakeholders and regulators can also use the tool to identify likely units and regions impacted by different efficiency or renewable energy programs. The tool tracks each fossil unit’s generation, heat input, and emissions, and is able to identify likely changes in regional emissions when units are retired, replaced, or retrofitted with pollution controls. AVERT uses public data reported to the EPA by power plants in the United States. New to AVERT? You’ll get to see it in action! Already familiar with AVERT? This is your chance to learn about the exciting 2018 updates.
