Gas Company Climate Planning Tool
On behalf of Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and through its development of a framework to estimate life cycle emissions of delivered natural gas, M.J. Bradley & Associates developed the Gas Company Climate Planning Tool to help natural gas utilities and other stakeholders quantify the impacts of alternative supply- and demand-side scenarios. This Excel-based tool can provide analytical support to users by evaluating:
- Company-specific life cycle GHG emissions associated with delivered gas;
- GHG emissions across business-as-usual (BAU) and user-defined scenarios; and
- Impacts and changes in emissions, social cost of carbon savings, and gas demand resulting from gas company upgrades and application of supply- and demand-side strategies.
The tool is pre-populated with data publicly reported by U.S. natural gas utilities and allows users to define analysis parameters and apply custom scenarios. Results are updated in real-time as inputs, assumptions, and strategies are changed.
