Myths and Facts about Clean Electricity in the South.
CEPL analyzes climate change and energy policies using software tools including the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS), hybrid NEMS-Input/Output approaches, and Monte Carlo methods to characterize uncertainties. These models are used to evaluate the speed and market penetration of new and improved energy technologies and the ability of possible future policies to accelerate technology adoption. NEMS, in particular, characterizes thousands of supply- and demand-side energy technologies. Georgia Tech is among a few institutions that can adapt and deploy these models to help inform the opportunities and constraints surrounding technology and policy innovations.
