Net Emissions Analysis Tool (NEAT), formally known as the LifeCycle Analysis Working Group

The South Coast Air Quality Management District is forming a working group as described in the 2016 AQMP to discuss assessing the cost-effectiveness of technologies and life-cycle emissions. The 2016 AQMP includes a number of control measures which seek emission reductions with zero and near-zero NOx appliances in commercial and residential applications, and integrate energy efficiency enhancements with criteria pollutant (e.g., NOx) co-benefits. To this end, the SCAQMD staff will develop an emissions tool to estimate changes in criteria and GHG emissions and costs associated with upgrades in commercial and residential appliances, in conjunction with installation of zero and near-zero emission technologies. This tool will also be critical in developing a Solar Technology Initiative which will be a guiding document to provide for better integration of major planning issues regarding solar technologies including benefits, current market conditions and potential of emission reductions along with corresponding action items.
