Upcoming Webinars

The Avoided Emissions and Generation Tool
Thursday, June 21st | 2:00-3:00pm ET | REGISTER

Join Synapse Energy Economics and Robyn DeYoung from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on June 21st to learn about the Avoided Emissions and Generation Tool (AVERT). AVERT is an open-access tool built for the EPA by Synapse and ERG to estimate the hourly emissions and generation benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy policies and programs. AVERT allows non-expert users to measure displaced HOURLY emissions of CO2, SO2, PM2.5 and NOX, and avoided generation mitigated by local, state, or multi-state programs. Stakeholders and regulators can also use the outputs of the tool for air quality modeling and to estimate public health benefits. Advanced users can also develop a near-term future scenario by retiring, replacing, or retrofitting with pollution controls. AVERT uses public data reported to the EPA by power plants in the United States.

New to AVERT? You’ll get to see it in action! Already familiar with AVERT? This is your chance to learn about the exciting 2018 updates.

Presenters: Robyn DeYoung, Senior Policy Analyst, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Jamie Hall, Synapse Energy Economics; and Nina Peluso, Synapse Energy Economics
