Physical and economic potential of geological CO2 storage in saline aquifers.
(Environ Sci Technol, 2009-03-15)
Carbon sequestration in sandstone saline reservoirs holds great potential for mitigating climate change, but its storage potential and cost per ton of avoided CO2 emissions are uncertain. We develop a general model to determine ...
Energy Efficiency Policies: A Retrospective Examination
(Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2006-11)
Information programs for technology adoption: The case of energy-efficiency audits
(Resource and Energy Economics, 2004-03-01)
We analyze technology adoption decisions of manufacturing plants in response to government-sponsored energy audits. Overall, plants adopt about half of the recommended energy-efficiency projects. Using fixed effects logit ...
Migration and hedonic valuation: The case of air quality
(Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 2009-07-01)
Conventional hedonic techniques for estimating the value of local amenities rely on the assumption that households move freely among locations. We show that when moving is costly, the variation in housing prices and wages ...
Estimating equilibrium models of sorting across locations
(Economic Journal, 2007-03-01)
While there is growing interest in measuring the size and scope of local spillovers, it is well understood that such spillovers cannot be distinguished from unobservable local attributes using solely the observed location ...
Designing Climate Mitigation Policy
Discounting the distant future: How much do uncertain rates increase valuations?
(Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 2003-07-01)
We demonstrate that when the future path of the discount rate is uncertain and highly correlated, the distant future should be discounted at significantly lower rates than suggested by the current rate. We then use two centuries ...
Carbon mitigation costs for the commercial building sector: Discrete-continuous choice analysis of multifuel energy demand
(Resource and Energy Economics, 2008-12-01)
We estimate a carbon mitigation cost curve for the U.S. commercial sector based on econometric estimation of the responsiveness of fuel demand and equipment choices to energy price changes. The model econometrically estimates ...
International technology-oriented agreements to address climate change
(Energy Policy, 2008-01-01)
Much discussion has surrounded possible alternatives for international agreements on climate change, particularly post-2012. Among these alternatives, technology-oriented agreements (TOAs) are perhaps the least well defined. ...
