EPA is developing a fuzzy logic and/or neural network model for predicting U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from the electric utility sector. The model would be a refinement and modification of the existing Electric Utility Model (EUMOD). Development and testing of the model would use similar data inputs and would follow a testing and validation procedure similar to that used for EUMOD. In this case, the output from the model would be esitmated future carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for each state. CO2 is the most significant greenhouse gas pollutant in the U.S., accounting for about 85% of national greenhouse gas emissions. Currently electric utilties produce about one-third of the national CO2 emissions.
