Energy Innovation Policy & Technology® and RMI Launch 48 U.S. State EPS Models
Energy Innovation Policy &Technology LLC® and RMI developed 48 state Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) models to help policymakers design impactful climate policies. To show how the EPS can inform decision-making, Energy Innovation® and RMI modeled a five-policy scenario across six states, finding five top policies that can dramatically cut state greenhouse gas emissions, grow state economies, and prevent thousands of asthma attacks.
How The Energy Policy Simulators Work And Are Developed
An overview of how the Energy Policy Simulator works and what peer review it undergoes during model development.
Then And Now: Scientific Investigations Of Colorado River Drought A Quarter Century Apart
As the Colorado River Compact is renegotiated, scientists are critically examining historical research on the river’s flow to ensure decision-makers across the western United States and Mexico have the information they need to prepare for a future where drought is the norm.

Smoke-Ready Communities: Learning To Live With Wildfire Smoke
In order to stay safe and healthy during wildfire smoke events, communities need to understand the health impacts of exposure, know the interventions they can take to mitigate risks, have access to accurate air quality data, and most importantly, have access to clean indoor air. Recent research underscores opportunities to improve smoke readiness across these dimensions.
Water Quality Impacts Under The Worsening Wildfire Regime
Wildfires are increasing in intensity, frequency, and size, decimating ecosystems and devastating communities. As worries about the impacts of wildfires grow, researchers are ramping up efforts to understand wildfires’ water quality repercussions. Studies conducted following the Marshall and Camp fires will help lay the groundwork for future water resiliency efforts and community preparedness.
Energy Innovation® Launches South Korea EPS model, Updates India And Mexico EPS models
Energy Innovation Policy and Technology LLC® has launched a new South Korea EPS model in partnership with the NEXT Group and updated the Mexico and India Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) models. The Mexico EPS was upgraded to the 3.3.1 platform to enable forecasting changes in jobs, gross domestic product, and public health impacts, while India EPS data was updated to account for slower GDP growth resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Human Health in the Age of Climate Change: Disease, Nutrition, and Access at a Crossroads
Studies show climate events can have catastrophic consequences for human health including the spread of disease vectors and contaminated food or drinking water supplies, but new research is identifying ways to reduce the risks.
