Oil Disruption Risks

An Assessment of Oil Market Disruption Risks

The probability of the size and duration of another oil disruption is critical to the estimated value of the strategic petroleum reserve (SPR) and its desired size. Recent changes in world events (a range of Middle Eastern conflicts), tensions in other parts of the world and vastly changing... more

EMF 33: Bio-Energy and Land Use

The EMF 33 Bio-Energy and Land Use study is motivated by the need for information and analysis to help answer two critical questions: (1) How feasible are very low temperature change scenarios rely heavily on massive deployments of advanced bio-energy technologies, and (2) Massive bio-energy expansion could have many large negative side effects on... more

EMF 32: US GHG and Revenue Recycling Scenarios

The purpose of this modeling exercise is to use energy-economic models to assess emissions, energy and economic outcomes from a plausible range of US policies to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs). In addition to standard emphasis on the effects of such policies on emissions, energy prices and macroeconomic performance, an economic issue of... more

EMF 31: North American Natural Gas and Energy Markets in Transition

This working group will extend its analysis on the important energy transition towards higher shale oil and natural gas resources, building upon findings from the previous EMF 26 study.

EMF 30: Short Lived Climate Forcers / Air Quality

Critical interactions can occur between policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and those targeted on reducing emissions of criteria pollutants like sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, mercury, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter. These interactions have to do with the level of the emissions or concentration targets set,... more
