Regulating Greenhouse Gases from Coal Power Plants under the Clean Air Act
New research from RFF experts confirms that there are important, low-cost opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions at existing coal-fired facilities in the short run.
Managing the Risks of Shale Gas: Identifying a Pathway toward Responsible Development
Experts discussed technical processes, policies, and more at the launch of the Center for Energy Economics and Policy’s initiative to identify how government and industry can responsibly develop shale gas. Event video, audio, and presentations are now available.
How the United States Can Support REDD+ Programs
Efforts to reduce deforestation in developing tropical countries continue to provide promising opportunities to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while simultaneously addressing development concerns.
Assessing the Energy Efficiency Information Gap
New research from RFF scholars highlights the role information plays in the adoption of energy efficiency technologies.
Energy Efficiency Policy: Surveying the Puzzles
Energy efficiency policies are favored by many to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy security, and reduce consumer costs. In a new RFF Discussion Paper, Senior Fellow Tim Brennan examines presumptions about such policies, noting that they often don’t hold true and are easily complicated.
Understanding Important Elements of a Clean Energy Standard
Policy design, electricity price implications, and regional impacts were among the topics discussed at a recent RFF/EPA workshop on clean energy standards. Event summary and presentations are now available.
Parsing the Flexibility of EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Rules
Clean Air Act experts recently gathered at RFF to discuss the way forward for EPA in regulating greenhouse gases. Key insights are now available online.
An Opportunity for Smart Regulation on Climate
EPA has the option to use flexible compliance mechanisms that could reduce the cost of greenhouse gas regulation by over two-thirds, according to a pair of analyses released by RFF.
U.S. Policy Options for Reducing Tropical Deforestation: What Can be Done?
In a new Discussion Paper, RFF scholars propose a “whole-of-government” approach for slowing and reversing tropical forest loss to engage the full suite of policy levers in the federal government.
Renewable Energy in Antarctica and the Power of Being Bold
On June 15, RFF hosted polar explorer and environmental leader Robert Swan (OBE) at a Policy Leadership Forum, where he spoke on energy resources and strategies for sustainable global economic growth.
Shale Gas and Groundwater Contamination: Thoughts on a Recent Study
A recent article by Duke University researchers on methane contamination in drinking water wells in northeastern Pennsylvania and upstate New York has brought further attention to the risks to groundwater in areas exploited for shale gas.
Coordinating Global Economic Development Strategies to Combat Climate Change
A new RFF Discussion Paper says that the creation of a semiformal international coordinating entity could enrich country-specific low emissions development activities by building knowledge and capacity as well as enhancing the scale and predictability of funds.
Congressional Perspectives on Tropical Forest Conservation
A new Issue Brief by researchers from RFF and Climate Advisers details the results of a February 2011 survey of key congressional staff, examining attitudes and perspectives about tropical forest conservation.
Will Natural Gas Vehicles Be in Our Future?
A new RFF Issue Brief explains that heavy-duty trucks running on liquefied natural gas can reduce oil consumption and carbon dioxide emissions with reasonably competitive cost-effectiveness.
Coordinating Ecological and Economic Research: Introducing rff.org/cmew

In this Q&A, Director of RFF's Center for the Management of Ecological Wealth (CMEW) Jim Boyd explains how the center extends RFF’s work on natural resource, energy, and climate issues. Learn more about CMEW’s work here.

America’s Nuclear Future: Q&A with RFF President Phil Sharp
RFF President Phil Sharp discusses how recent events in Japan might affect the development of nuclear energy in the United States.
Understanding “Fat-Tailed” Distributions and Their Policy Implications
In a new discussion paper, RFF's Roger Cooke and coauthor Daan Niebor explore "fat-tailed" phenomena, including natural disasters and crop losses, noting traditional statistical tools may not be sufficient to analyze such distributions and what they mean for policy.
Improving Regulatory Policy at Independent Regulatory Agencies
Presentations and selected papers are now available from the recent RFF conference "Can Greater Use of Economic Analysis Improve Regulatory Policy at Independent Regulatory Agencies?"
Programs for Electricity Energy Efficiency: Are They Cost-Effective?
An updated study by RFF researchers takes a closer look at the cost-effectiveness of programs designed to reduce consumer electricity consumption.
Raising the Game to Reduce the Risks
One year after the Deepwater Horizon disaster, RFF’s Mark Cohen explains that much still needs to be done to ensure a safer future in deepwater drilling.
