MetadataShow full item record
The Energy Systems Laboratory, in fulfillment of its responsibilities under Texas Health and Safety Code Ann. § 388.003 (e), Vernon Supp. 2002, submits its third annual report, Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy (EE/RE) Impact in the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The report is organized in three volumes. Volume 1 – Summary Report, provides an executive summary with key areas summarized; Volume II – Technical Report, provides a detailed report of activities, methodologies and findings; Volume III – Technical Appendix, contains detailed data from simulations for each of the forty-one counties included in the analysis.
DescriptionThe Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP), established by the 77th Texas Legislature with the enactment of Senate Bill 5 (SB 5), identified that EE/RE measures may make an important contribution for meeting the minimum federal ambient air quality standards. The 78th Legislature further enhanced the use of EE/RE programs for meeting TERP goals by requiring the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to promote the use of EE/RE as a way of meeting the federal air quality standards and to develop a methodology for computing emissions reduction for the State Implementation Plan (SIP) from EE/RE programs.
