Mobile Source Emissions and Energy
Ship Emissions and Fuel Cycle Analysis
EERA's team members are experts at understanding how energy-use and emissions change according to operating mode choice in marine transportation. Additionally, EERA uses total fuel-cycle analysis to understand the energy use and emissions associated with the production, distribution, and combustion of marine transportation fuels. EERA has developed capabilities to manage, analyze, and visualize big data sources like AIS, allowing for rapid development of state of the art activity-based emissions models.
Transportation Energy Analysis
Transportation energy represents one of EERA’s strengths, combining our analytical skills with extensive knowledge of transportation systems (highway, marine, rail; infrastructure and vehicle technologies; emissions, economic, and energy use). We have experience developing a variety of models and using existing off-the-shelf models, including developing the New York Greenhouse Gas and Regulated Emissions and Energy Use in Transportation (NY-GREET) model for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Members of the EERA team were responsible for developing the Total Emissions and Energy Analysis for Marine Systems (TEAMS) model, which can estimate total fuel cycle emissions for marine vessels.
Mobile Source Emissions Modeling
For both mobile and stationary sources related to transportation modes, terminals, facilities, and ports, the EERA team can analyze the impacts of various technology policy decisions based on quantitative analysis of energy and combustion technologies. Our expertise ranges from deploying existing environmental software packages (e.g., EPA's MOVES model, DOE's GREET model, etc.), to optimization modeling that can identify preferred ways to meet your emissions and environmental goals, to tailored site and operation-specific emissions modeling.
