Last summer the Oregon Department of Energy, in support of the Governor’s 10-Year Energy Action Plan, commissioned a study that conducted foundational analysis and modeling for a suite of energy and greenhouse gas reduction measures.  The primary focus of the project was to produce marginal abatement cost curves (MACCs) that show the greenhouse gas emissions abatement potential relative to the cost of that abatement over a range of emission reduction measures.  Multiple cost curves were produced representing differing assumptions about levels of commitment and action toward greenhouse gas abatement by external drivers, such as federal policy and technological progress, for two points in the future – the 10-Year Energy Action Plan horizon of 2022 and an end point of 2035.  Over 200 emission reduction measures were analyzed and included in the MACCs. The project was funded by federal ARRA (stimulus) money and, for that reason, had an extremely short timeline of about three months.  More information on the project can be found at:
When the final report from the contractor was released in early October 2012, the Department asked for technical comments to ensure that any data gaps or other technical issues were identified.   In addition, a discussion webinar was held to provide greater understanding of the project context and to receive additional feedback from interested parties.  Recently, the Department has reengaged contractors on a limited basis to refine and expand on the original project work.  This reengagement has provided an opportunity to conduct an informational discussion webinar to answer or discuss many of the questions and issues brought up by stakeholders in the technical comments received on the original project work.  This webinar and discussion will be a chance for those interested in the technical details that went into the original project, or those that wish to suggest specific ways in which the original project could be improved in these areas (e.g., different input assumptions or data), to get questions answered and discuss the results with the contractors who produced the MACCs (Bill Dougherty and David von Hippel, Center for Climate Strategies) and Bill Drumheller, ODOE, facilitating.
