Multi‐Generation Unit Input/Output Mix Life Cycle Assessment

Development of a mixed‐unit - incorporating both economic and energy/electricity flows - and electricity‐specific input‐output model for use in life cycle assessment and energy policy evaluation, enabling both system‐wide analysis necessary to evaluate policy options and also providing accuracy necessary for determining impacts of producing other products. The work we build upon a disaggregated version of the power generation sector in the United States' input‐output tables, and a mixed‐unit framework to build the model; characterize the improvement and quantify the uncertainty of the model's results; and build and evaluate a hypothetical energy and climate policy scenario to demonstrate results through model analysis.
