Costs Of NOx Control Strategies On Electric Power Generation Using The Integrated Planning Model, Draft.
The Implementation Strategies and Issues Work Group (ISI) of the Ozone Transport Assessment Group (OTAG) requested that the US EPA use the Integrated planning Model (IPM) to analyze the costs for the electric power industry of NOx control strategies during Round 3 geographical analyses. The strategy options covered NOx emissions during the summer season. ISI asked EPA to use control technology costs and performance information that the Control Technologies and Options Work Group (CTO) collected and developed throughout 1996. Initially, an ad hoc work group of CTO determined how OTAG's cost assumptions should be used in IPM, while the Trading/Incentives Work Group specified the actual control strategies that EPA analyses. CTO also requested that EPA use IPM to analyze a rate-based approach to NOx control in OTAG using two different sets of NOx control cost and performance assumptions.
This document provides brief descriptions of what IPM is and how EPA uses the model, the direction that ISI provided the Agency on this analysis, the coverage and structure of the analysis, and the results.
