assessment of environmental benefits modeling system aeb objective
Assessment of Environmental Benefits Modeling System (AEB) Objective
  • Get SIP Credit for Air Quality Benefits of Energy Efficiency Technologies:
  • How do we make the case?
    • Link together accepted models using new S/W tools and new methods
      • ORCED = Oak Ridge Competitive Electricity Dispatch model (Stan Hadley, ORNL)
      • SMOKE
      • CMAQ
  • Follow USEPA Guidance of August 5, 2004 to ensure emission reductions will be: Quantifiable, Surplus, Enforceable, Permanent

Source Domain for CMAQ Sensitivity Analyses

Southern + TVA + VACAR subregions; that portion of SERC that most closely resembles VISTAS

cmaq modeling scenarios
CMAQ modeling scenarios

Future base case: VISTAS OTW 2018 F4

Modeling time period: 1 year

Met data: 2002 (VISTAS)

Grid resolution: 36 km

Results – 2018 Reductions at Projected Cost

Beyond 300k Annual Tons

SO2 Reduction: $5,000/ton*

NOx Allowance: $5,000/ton**

*according to recent analysis by G. Stella of Alpine Geophysics, SO2 reductions costs increase exponentially beyond 300k tons reduced

**approximate value indicated for 2018 by EIA in AEO2005

results 2018 reductions conservative projection of costs and demand impact
Results – 2018 Reductions, Conservative Projection of Costs and Demand Impact

SO2 Reduction: $2,115/ton*

NOx Allowance: $3,000/ton**

*average of per ton cost for annual reductions less than 300k tons (data from analysis by G. Stella of Alpine Geophysics)

**approximately mid-way between present day trade value and projection by EIA for 2018

Conclusion: Linkage Between Energy Modeling and Air Quality Modeling with AEB

SM

Sensitivity Matrix captures the intelligence of CMAQ modeling runs with pollutant-specific, gridded, hourly sensitivity factors.

Expresses the modeled sensitivity of emissions and the ambient air in response to changes in power demand

Principal benefit: states’ tool for characterizing emissions and air quality benefits from EERE technologies / programs.
