Help state energy, environmental, and economic policy makers identify and quantify the energy, environmental — specifically greenhouse gas, air, and health — and economic benefits of clean energy. State clean energy initiatives can generate significant economic, public health and environmental benefits. While the costs of clean energy initiatives get the most attention, less is devoted to the many benefits of clean energy, perhaps because there isn't a clear understanding of the benefits and how to estimate them. Assessing the Multiple Benefits of Clean Energy: A Resource for States (February 2010) address that gap and helps state energy, environmental, and economic policy makers identify and quantify the energy, environmental — specifically greenhouse gas, air, and health — and economic benefits of clean energy. This groundbreaking document is the first to organize and present a comprehensive review of these benefits, together with an analytical framework that states can use to assess those benefits during the development and implementation of clean energy policies and programs. It includes tips on tools and approaches to use, what to consider when assessing benefits, and examples from state and local governments.
