Review of Emission Reductions from Renewables & Energy Efficiency in North America


Synapse reviewed recent efforts to estimate emission reductions from renewable energy and energy efficiency in Canada, Mexico, and the United States.  The CEC was interested in developing a comparable methodology to calculate displaced emissions from these technologies across North America.  Working with consultants in Mexico and Canada, Synapse assessed recent efforts to quantify the benefits of energy efficiency and renewables and presented the key methodological challenges and best practices in such quantification efforts.  Project completed in September 2003.
