CHP Systems Reduce the Global Warming Intensity of Producing Ethanol from Corn - January 2008

A paper, "Global Warming Intensity of Ethanol," written by Dr. Steffen Mueller and published in the January 2008 issue of the BioCycle Energy magazine, estimates the global warming intensity of various pathways for producing ethanol from corn. The estimates, made using the BEACCON model, conclude that CHP systems reduce the global warming intensity of producing ethanol from corn. A copy of the paper is available here.

3 January 2007 - AEEE Survey Assesses Emissions Models for Combined Heat and Power Systems

How "Clean" Is "Lean"? Washington, D.C. (January 3, 2007): The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) released a new report, "Survey of Emissions Models for Distributed Combined Heat and Power Systems." The report reviews existing models' attempts to quantify or describe the emissions effects of combined heat and power (CHP) systems. The models surveyed vary in design, scope, and detail, but they all commonly seek to capture the functions of an energy economy and use knowledge of economic interactions to simulate the effects of economic and policy changes. "Survey of Emissions Models for Distributed Combined Heat and Power Systems" is available online for free download at
