Energy consumption is the largest controllable source of emissions that impact air quality (e.g., SO2, NOx, primary PM2.5) and climate, including greenhouse gases (GHGs) and near-term climate forcers (NTCFs), such as particulate sulfate and black carbon. The U.S. energy landscape is changing dramatically, driven by economic developments that highlight the role of resource cost on U.S. energy choices. Investigators at Rutgers are linking energy and environmental models at regional and national levels, from hourly to decadal time scales, to comprehensively consider the effects of regulatory policy on climate and air quality.
