  • EPIC Part of ANL Energy Storage Hub | Energy Policy Institute at Chicago | The University of Chicago
    Engineering will hire two faculty members who specialize in developing energy storage technology People who create new materials for batteries are really at the forefront in new developments in molecular engineering said Matthew Tirrell the Institute s Pritzker Director Nanoengineering materials offer the possibility of high energy density and stability over many cycles of charging and discharging Tirrell said But it is a complex job to get simultaneously the right electrical properties and mechanical properties Tirrell noted that one of Argonne s partners at the center is Yet Ming Chiang the Kyocera Professor of Ceramics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology He s viewed as one of the foremost battery scientists in the world Tirrell said A different kind of collaboration will come from the Energy Policy Institute at Chicago EPIC an interdisciplinary research and training institute focused on the economic and social consequences of energy policies It is a joint initiative of the Harris School of Public Policy Studies and the Chicago Booth School of Business EPIC will work with Argonne to understand economic and policy aspects of inserting advanced energy storage technologies into the future energy system said EPIC director Robert Rosner the William E Wrather Distinguished Service Professor in Astronomy Astrophysics Six of Argonne s members of the new center will receive management training through the UChicago s Strategic Laboratory Leadership Program More than 100 national laboratory professionals have received training through the program since it was established in 2007 The program draws upon expertise from Chicago Booth to develop future laboratory leaders and foster closer working relationships between Argonne and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Argonne the nation s first national laboratory conducts research in virtually every scientific discipline UChicago Argonne LLC manages the laboratory for the U S Department of Energy s Office of Science Latest

  • EPIC Faculty Affiliate Chad Syverson Speaks About Recent Working Paper | Energy Policy Institute at Chicago | The University of Chicago
    panel data and the US Census Bureau s Annual Survey of Manufacturers ASM Syverson and his co authors targeted the variation between the two designations attainment and nonattainment by measuring the changes to the respective total factor productivities from each of these counties annually The study takes advantage of the fact that the plants within county receiving a non attainment designation for a particular year are subject to strict environmental scrutiny and required abatement standards It is through the need for adaptation that the TFP is negatively affected In total 3 141 US counties were included in the study spanning a 28 year period 1972 2000 In order to remove biased effects on the TFP resulting from geographical influences Syverson and his colleagues compared non emitting plants to emitting plants from the same counties Since only those plants emitting the target pollutants were subject to abatement requirements the non emitting plants served as controls to remove the influence of changes in TFP not related to the EPA designations In addition the authors were able to hold the individual plants influences constant since counties flowed between the two attainment statuses at a consistent rate thereby eliminating the effects a few repeatedly non attaining plants skewing the results While the data collected was quite robust for analyzing the overall sector of manufacturing the authors did identify three sources of bias for which they tried to account First their data was not able to capture the TFP lost by plants that exited the market due to the abatement regulations if that indeed happened Second the data use revenue to proxy for output which can lead to an undercounting of output losses This occurs when an internalization of abatement costs pushes prices up causing gross revenues to appear greater Finally those plants not subject

  • A Conservative’s Search for Solutions to Climate Change: Speaking with Former Congressman Robert Inglis | Energy Policy Institute at Chicago | The University of Chicago
    Dad I ll vote for you but you got to clean up your act on the environment His sisters and mother agreed and so I mean that s a pretty important constituency to please The second was a series of trips to Antarctica where he met Donal Manahan a marine scientist based at the University of Southern California and Scott Heron a NOAA scientist studying the impact of climate change on Australia s coral reef system From that point on Mr Inglis became a leading if lonely conservative voice in favor of taking action to address climate change At a lecture sponsored by the Energy Policy Institute at Chicago EPIC Mr Inglis said he believed that in order to effectively address climate change we must end all subsidies for all fuels and attach all costs to all fuels This approach he suggests makes it possible for the market place to properly judge fuels and methods of energy production against each other which should please Republicans who favor meritocracy And because all fuels are treated the same Mr Inglis asserts it is an egalitarian system that ought to appeal to Democrats as well During the question and answer period some audience members questioned whether removing subsidies for alternative fuels actually creates a level playing field given that the infrastructure needed to support the production of fossil fuels already exists Others questioned exactly which costs would be attached to fossil fuel production and delivery is it limited to domestic costs or does it include international costs does it take into account the cost of military activities necessary to protect fuel supplies When asked how he responds to those who criticize him for believing in climate change Mr Inglis responded Well first I tell them that I don t believe in climate change
