Modeling an Integrated High Efficiency Scenario

Georgia Tech's School of Public Policy assisted Duke University's Nicholas Institute of Environmental Policy Solutions (NIEPS) in its project with the World Resources Institute aimed at informing and analyzing potential US climate mitigation policies in the post-2020 period. The project involved constructing scenarios consisting of multiple policies applied to various sectors of the US economy. Georgia Tech was tasked with analyzing policies to promote energy efficiency in residential and commercial buildings and industry. In collaboration with Duke University, Georgia Tech (GT) conducted the energy-economic modeling of a set of policy scenarios that define an "Integrated High Efficiency Scenario".
