Water@Wayne Seminar with Dr. Ines Azevedo, Carnegie Mellon University
October 8 2015 at 2:30 PM
Welcome Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne seminar on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center auditorium. The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested. The guest speaker will be Dr. Ines Azevedo, associate professor in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Azevedo will present, “Using a Marginal Emissions and Impacts Factors Framework for Policy Decisions: Applications to Renewables, Storage, Buildings and Data Centers.” Dr. Azevedo’s research interests lie at the intersection of environmental, technical and economic issues, such as how to address the challenge of climate change and to move towards a more sustainable energy system. She addresses complex problems in which traditional engineering plays an important role but cannot provide a complete answer.   Abstract: What is the increase or decrease in climate, health, and environmental damages that occur when different interventions, such as renewables, storage, or energy efficiency measures are pursued in a region? Using a regression-based model that couples a detailed characterization of emissions of CO2, PM2.5, NOx, and SO2 for each fossil fuel power plant in the United States, coupled with a model of output of different energy policy interventions and a monetization of the impacts associated with the avoided or increase emissions, we provide a tool that can be used to support decision making under uncertainty. We find, for example, that when wind or solar energy displace conventional generation, the reduction in emissions varies dramatically across the United States.  A short reception will immediately follow Dr. Azevedo's presentation.
