In this presentation to state legislators and legislative staff, EI’s Mike O’Boyle explains why greenhouse gas accounting is a strong foundation for carbon reductions and how policies can work together to accelerate clean energy deployment and reduce costs.
This interactive demonstration of Energy Innovation’s U.S. Energy Policy Simulator’s newest features – including new job creation and GDP benefit estimates of various policy scenarios – shows how the online tool can model the emission, economic, and health benefits of a 1.5° Celsius degree policy pathway scenario.
EI’s CEO Hal Harvey joins acclaimed venture capitalist John Doerr to discuss the breakthroughs we need to cut global greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, as part of the global launch of the Countdown initiative. To do this, we need to decarbonize the grid and then “electrify everything” including buildings, cars, and industry.
This webinar taught climate and health advocates how to use the Energy Policy Simulator online modeling tool to demonstrate the importance of climate and energy policy for protecting public health and reducing premature death. Armed with clear and compelling data, illustrated by interactive graphs, climate and health advocates can effectively communicate why strong climate policies are a “win-win” for health and jobs.
When utilities procure generation through processes biased against clean energy, they get portfolios with higher consumer costs and carbon emissions. This webinar outlines how “all-source” procurement allows renewable energy that is cheaper than fossil fuels to fairly compete and meet utility needs, reducing costs and emissions, citing examples from Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, and New Mexico.
This webinar discusses fully decarbonizing global industry to reach net zero industrial emissions by 2050–2070, as well as the technical measures and policies to boost technological deployment and make net zero industry a reality.
This webinar discusses how U.S. power sector plans for 70 gigawatts of new natural gas plants and pipelines risk nearly $1 trillion to consumers in unnecessary costs, billions in stranded assets for utilities, and emissions that would blow through the Paris Agreement’s warming targets. Speakers include experts from Energy Innovation, Morgan Stanley, utility Arizona Public Service, Rocky Mountain Institute, and shareholder advocacy group As You Sow.
EI’s Hal Harvey explains how net-zero buildings and improved building codes are key to lowering emissions and avoiding wasted energy.
EI’s Hal Harvey gives his opinion on the ideal Green New Deal, how government needs to set decarbonization goals, and how the private sector can meet them.
Some people say fighting climate change will hurt the economy. EI’s Hal Harvey explains why that’s not the case in this Years of Living Dangerously feature.
