Greenhouse gas equivalency metrics for evaluating energy technologies
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
This thesis addresses a long-standing question about how to compare energy technologies that emit different types of climate forcers during their life cycles. This problem is challenging because these forcers have dissimilar ...
Climate impact metrics for energy technology evaluation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
The climate change mitigation potential of energy technologies depends on how their lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions compare to global climate stabilization goals. Current methods for comparing technologies, which assess ...
