Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider some discounting problems. a. What is the present value of a $100m loss from an environmental catastrophe, 100 years in the future, if the discount rate is 2%? (You can choose your own rate of compounding.) b. What is the present value of the same loss, if the discount rate is 1.5% because of lower growth rate trends? If 1%? c. If a policy analyst is not certain which of the discount rates is appropriate, but believes there is an approximately equal chance of each outcome, is the average discounted present value appropriate? Does that imply a higher or lower discounted value than just using the average discount rate? d. Suppose the best available models imply a link between discount rate and damages: if economic growth is slow then the damages would be $150m and the appropriate discount rate would be 1%; if economic growth is middling then damages would be $125m and a discount rate of 1.5% would turn out to be most appropriate; if growth is good then damages are $100m and the rate 2%. Carefully explain whether averaging is the best policy (you might cite readings on this topic). What is the present value of the loss in each case?

Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider a firm that emits CO2 in its production of output, and it faces a new regulation that requires it to buy emissions permits for each unit of CO2 produced. For simplicity assume that it emits one unit of emission (e) for each unit of output produced. Its cost function, before the emissions permit rules are passed, is c(y)=10+5y+y^2. Suppose P=20. a. How much would the firm be producing, before the emissions permit rules? Explain. b. How much CO2 would it be producing before the rules went into effect? Explain. c. Suppose each permit cost $6, how many permits would the firm choose to purchase. Explain. d. What if permits were just $3? If they were $10? e. Would you predict any changes to the price of the output? Explain how and why this might come about.

Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider an industry that creates pollution. Demand for the product is given as P = 150 – 2Q. Supply (considering just private costs) is P=Q. Suppose that production creates a marginal external cost of MEC = Q additionally. a. What is the unregulated equilibrium value of production? b. What is consumer surplus and producer surplus in the unregulated market? c. What is the deadweight loss from unregulated production? d. What is the socially optimal level of production? e. Explain why a "free market" fails in this case. f. Suppose a tax were imposed of T=$8, what would then be the deadweight loss? g. Is there some level of tax that would eliminate the deadweight loss? What value? h. Suppose that there is an unregulated fringe market, that can produce additional output at a price of $60 (there may be a variety of reasons for the lack of regulation, such as point vs nonpoint air pollution sources). What is the deadweight loss of the tax from the previous question?

Review Sustainability Reports from top U.S. companies and score sustainability metrics as they relate to economic returns. I will provide reports, search terms, guidance for scoring, and spreadsheet. Approximately 30 sustainability reports - will require 1-1.5 hours to review and score each report. Use search terms provided in column header (rollover for comments) to determine if the sustainability report considers the economic returns (or savings) of sustainable practices. These practices include: Water Consumption, Energy Consumption, Material Consumption, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions, Air Quality, Water Quality, Solid Wastes, Toxic Wastes, Biodiversity/ Ecosystem Impacts, and Land/ Soil Degradation. Scoring criteria is provided below, and within the spreadsheet. And, an example is provided for the GE Sustainability report. NA - not included in report (also grey stippled columns may not be relevant) 0 - no mention of economic returns regardless of quality of report --- BE CAREFUL, savings, reductions and efficiencies should still be a ZERO - cost savings, reductions or efficiencies should be mentioned to warrant a score of 1 or higher. 1 - mentions economic returns as potential for gains or savings, e.g., cost savings as a result of water reuse 2 - provides value range of economic returns, e.g. reduced cost by 20% or thousands of dollar 3 - provides specific value of economic returns (profits, revenue or savings), e.g., increased profits by $350,000 4 - links value of returns to specific actions or competitive advantage, e.g. reduced costs per unit allowing greater returns compared to competition, or $1 billion profits leading to market leadership

need the methodology for my research topic and the simulation to : enhance the sustainability of buildings in terms of energy efficiency and performance in order to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emission in new buildings using both smart control systems and clean renewable energy The simulator will incorporate various parts of the building; systems of energy production, energy control systems and energy consumption specifications. A detached house will be integrated in the model where the house can be geographically located through its latitude and longitude. The model house is expected to automatically integrate other rooms in addition to bedrooms and the rooms will include; kitchen, bathrooms and living room. Various appliances will also be included ranging from 5 W to 2 kW, and for every appliance, the power rating will be selected. For example, the bulbs to select for the building will either be low consumption type or incandescent type. Additionally, various renewable sources of energy supply to the building to be incorporated in the simulation model will be solar PV electricity. Finally, a smart metering system will be integrated. The metering system will help in setting the frame for handling the flux of the energy as per the energy consumption as well as the energy price.

SIDEworks is requesting proposals from qualified firms/ individuals to provide building energy modeling services for the 6000 square feet Library Building. The modeling services requested will be to redo energy model and address issues raised by reviewer during design review stage. The engagement period will be until the energy model is accepted by the LEED review team. The software used for energy modelling so far by local certification team is carrier HAP and will be shared with selected contractor. If the contractor prefers, they may use Equest, Trane Trace or IESve instead of HAP. The selected contractor will be provided access to LEEDonline portal so they shall fill out energy performance credits. The contractor shall be required to share both output reports and, energy model computer file with client. The contractor shall be required to complete the modelling within 2 weeks. Kindly provide a detailed technical & financial proposal along will relevant experience details.

i am an internationally known expert in Passivhaus Design and Construction. I am looking to create a set of videos that explain what I do and how i do it in small bites (60 sec - 120 sec) I have been practicing low energy design and construction for over 30 years and am an architect, builder and energy nerd. I have been teaching and mentoring for the past 5 years and am trying to get off the road. (I( hvae averages 3 weeks per month on the lecture circuit) I would like to make my teaching accessible to anyone that is interested in am attempt to further the field of low energy design and construction. i am looking for someone to help me with the creative part. i know the nuts and bolts and have ideas about the big picture but lack the creative knowledge of this art form. i really need someone that has the experience and shares the passion for this. i will be paying for the work, but giving away the videos to teach folks. I am attaching a file for a first shot at a simple concept.
