U.S. Energy Standard Calc Method Chosen

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The U.S. Department of Energy has announced the modeling system it plans to use to derive energy and emission multipliers in future energy conservation standards.
     Check out Courthouse News’ Environmental Law Review.
     The system, called the National Energy Modeling System, would be used for calculating full-fuel-cycle measures of energy use and greenhouse gas and other emissions. It was developed by the DOE’s Energy Information Administration.
     The DOE also had evaluated the Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Transportation model for the purpose.
     The announcement was made as a DOE policy amendment, and said comments would be accepted.
