By Hongyan He Oliver, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2004-2009
From March 2005–December 2006, a research team headed by ETIP carried out a project in Tianjin, China, to study emissions from on-road vehicles.
"Analysis of Policies to Reduce Oil Consumption and Greenhouse-Gas Emissions from the U.S. Transportation Sector"
By Kelly Sims Gallagher, Senior Associate, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group and Gustavo Collantes, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy Research Group/Enviroment and Natural Resources Program, 2007-2008
This study examines different policy scenarios for reducing GHG emissions and oil consumption in the U.S. transportation sector using a variant of the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS).
By Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009
In this Belfer Center discussion paper, Bielicki describes SimCCS, a cost-minimizing geospatial deployment model used to deploy CCS for a variety of combinations of CO2 sources and injection reservoirs. The purpose of SimCCS is to determine the returns to scale for CCS deployment and to unravel the determinants thereof.

Carbon dioxide can be separated and captured more efficiently and at a lower cost from an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) coal generation power plant than from a conventional pulverized coal power plant.
Assessment of Advanced Coal-Based Electricity Generation Technology Options for India: Potential Learning from U.S. Experiences
By Debyani Ghosh, Former Research Associate, Energy Technology Innovation Policy Research Group, 2002-2005
India has huge domestic reserves of coal and predominantly depends on coal-based electricity generation to meet a substantial portion of its electricity generation requirements.
"CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS): Exploring the Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment Continuum"
By Bob van der Zwaan, Former Research Associate, Energy Technology Innovation research group/Project on Managing the Atom Project/Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, 2001–2005 and Jennie Stephens, Former Associate, Energy Technology Innovation Policy
The adoption of carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technologies is increasingly considered a potentially significant contributor to the energy infrastructure changes required to stabilize atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations for the mitigation of climate change.
The last decade has seen a major transformation of the Indian car industry.

There is a heated debated among policy makers about the relationship between domestic environmental regulation and international competitiveness. The conventional wisdom among economists is that environmental regulations impose significant costs, slow productivity growth, and thereby hinder the ability of U.S. firms to compete in international markets. Under a more recent, revisionist view, environmental regulations are seen as being not only benign in their impacts on international competitiveness, but actually a net positive force driving private firms and the economy as a whole to become more efficient and competitive in international markets.
