Environmental Impact of the Texas LoanSTAR Program
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an analysis of the environmental impact of the energy reductions that have been measured in the Texas LoanSTAR program. There are a number of factors that influence emission factors. The three major pollutants considered in this analysis are CO2, SO2 and NOx. Emission factors from three different sources were considered for this paper. This analysis shows that as of October 1997, there has been a reduction of emissions of 1,863 tons of NOx, 1.200 tons of SO2, and 530,000 tons of CO2 through the implementation of energy conserving measures in the 27 sites covering 290 buildings with retrofit savings of $36.6 million. The paper presents the results of the analysis and includes a discussion of the method used to calculate the emissions reduction.
