Kaplan, O. AND M. Isik. Overview of EPA tools for supporting local-, state- and regional-level decision makers addressing energy and environmental issues: NYC MARKAL Energy Systems Model and Municipal Solid Waste Decision Support Tool. Southeastern Environmental Conference, Orange Beach, AL, October 30 - November 01, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) has been developing tools and illustrative case studies for decision makers in local and regional authorities who are facing challenges of establishing resilience to extreme weather events, aging built environment and infrastructure, urbanization, managing limited natural resources, meeting environmental goals, and sustaining economic growth. Understanding the environmental and health implications of energy supply and use, as well as the extent to which energy resources and technologies may contribute to achieving current and future environmental goals is essential, but potentially could be a daunting task for local, state and regional authorities. A workshop will be conducted to demonstrate and focus on two decision support tools developed at EPA/ORD: 1. Community-scale MARKAL model: an energy-water technology evaluation tool and 2. Municipal Solid Waste Decision Support Tool (MSW DST). The Workshop will be part of Southeastern Environmental Conference, October 30-November 1, 2017, Orange Beach, AL
