The paper discusses utility emissions software for the development of the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) 1985 emissions inventory. For 1985, the development of an accurate and complete emissions inventory for pollutants considered to be precursors of acid deposition was identified as a critical element of the NAPAP. For 1985, NAPAP high priority emissions inventory data needs were incorporated into the National Emissions Data System (NEDS) reporting process with the primary objective being to complete a national source/emissions data base for calendar year 1985 for all sources with actual emissions of SO2, NOx, or VOCs greater than 100 tons per year. Recognizing the importance of electric utilities as a component of the NAPAP 1985 emissions inventory, and to assist the states in preparing their 1985 NEDS submittals, the project described in the paper made some of the utility data submitted to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) available on microcomputers so that they could be used readily by state air pollution control agencies and others.
