Energy Services Analysis: An Alternative Approach for Identifying Opportunities to Reduce Emissions of Greenhouse Gases by Liisa Ecola, Professor Keith Crane, Scott Hassell, Shanthi Nataraj (Paperback / softback, 2012)
Most environmental analyses focus on changing existing processes to use less energy and produce fewer emissions. This report uses energy service analysis (ESA) to examine possibilities for instead changing how a service is delivered. The ESA framework is used to analyze how changes in the provision of two services--news delivery and personal mobility--might reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and suggests other areas in which ESA could be applied.
