New website offers free analysis tools and hundreds of publications

Policymakers, researchers, and advocates seeking reliable, high-quality information about the electric power sector will find a wealth of resources on Synapse’s newly designed website, launched in September 2014.

The site features:

  • Hundreds of research studies and expert testimonies on topics ranging from integrated resource planning (IRP) and rate design to energy efficiency screening practices. View Synapse publications.
  • Free analysis tools for public use, including a tool to assess the competitiveness of individual coal-fired power plants, and a tool to estimate states’ electric-sector costs and benefits of Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act. View Synapse tools.

“Commitment to transparency, rigor, and the public interest is at the heart of who we are,” said Bruce Biewald, Synapse’s founder and CEO. “We’re excited that our new website will give us more options for sharing tools and information with the stakeholders working to address challenges in the electric power sector.”
