EPA Releases Report on Health Benefits of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a report to help state and local governments quantify the health benefits of existing or planned energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. It does so by providing benefits per kilowatt-hour (BPK) values that can be a part of a preliminary analysis to determine the impact of a variety of policy scenarios. The full report, that was prepared by the State and Local Energy and Environment Program within the Climate Protection Partnerships Division of EPA’s Office of Atmospheric Programs, can be viewed here.
