The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the transportation sector accounts for approximately 27% of all greenhouse gas emissions annually in the United States, and emissions from road transportation — driven by carbon-creating internal combustion vehicles — account for a large majority of that. For years, researchers have tried to measure these emissions more closely, but […]

Global carbon emissions from inland waters such as lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds are being undercounted by about 13% and will likely continue to rise given climate events and land use changes, Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists found. Researchers estimate that inland waters pump out 4.4 billion metric tons of carbon to the atmosphere annually, based on […]

Effects of Weather Projections On Energy Consumption in Buildings

Credit to Author: U.S. Energy Information Administration| Date: Wed, 08 Jun 2022 22:10:29 +0000

Nearly half of the energy consumed in U.S. buildings in 2021 was used for heating and cooling, according to modeled estimates in our Annual Energy Outlook 2022 (AEO2022) Reference case. An Issues in Focus analysis on alternative weather assumptions highlights how different long-term weather projections affect space heating and space cooling demand in the U.S. residential and commercial sectors. In […]
