Webinar: Value Added: Measuring the Health Benefits of Energy Efficiency and Renewables

Thursday, December 5, 2019. 2:00 PM. Webinar: Value Added: Measuring the Health Benefits of Energy Efficiency and Renewables. Discussion with Emma Zinsmeister, Nancy Seidman, and Jim Lazar. Register here.
A new tool published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Estimating the Health Benefits per-Kilowatt Hour of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, has the potential to change this status quo. It demonstrates that the health benefits gained from installing wind and solar may exceed the cost of new clean energy resources, and confirms that energy efficiency continues to prove its worth as the “first fuel.”
Join us for a webinar discussion as the EPA’s Emma Zinsmeister explains more about this innovative new tool, and RAP’s Jim Lazar and Nancy Seidman offer ways in which policymakers can ensure that this public-health value is reflected in energy planning, resource acquisition, utility dispatch and electric rate design. The presentation will be followed by ample opportunity for questions.
