Economic Impacts of Climate Change in Cape Cod
Synapse Energy Economics, as a subcontractor to Eastern Research Group, provided energy sector modeling services in support of the Cape Cod Commission’s efforts to explore the economic impacts of climate change. Energy sector modeling focused on an exploration of several greenhouse gas emissions mitigation scenarios. Synapse performed modeling for the three primary energy sectors: transportation, buildings, and electricity. The results of the modeling were used to develop recommendations for the Cape Cod Climate Action Plan.
