CO2 Emission Reductions from Changes in Electricity Generation and Use

COURSE NO: H11-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
CO2 Emission Reductions from Changes in Electricity Generation and Use
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introspective look into reducing CO2 emissions through comprehensive multi-sector and electric models.


The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) represents a significant legislative commitment to transform energy production and consumption, reduce the risks of climate change, improve environmental quality, and simultaneously spur investments that create economic opportunities. This course presents results from state-of-the-art multi-sector and electric sector models to assess how the IRA’s provisions reduce CO2 emissions.


This course is responsive to section 60107(5) of the Low Emissions Electricity Program within the IRA, which requires EPA to assess “... the reductions in greenhouse gas emissions that result from changes in domestic electricity generation and use that are anticipated to occur on an annual basis through fiscal year 2031.” This course primarily focuses on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions because the vast majority of direct electric sector GHG emissions are from fossil fuel combustion and the increased use of clean electricity primarily offsets fossil fuel use in end-use sectors.


This 11 PDH online course is applicable to environmental and civil engineers, as well as others who are interested in gaining insight on CO2 emissions, and the solutions to reduce the negative effects of emissions.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the emission reduction in multi-sector and electric sector models
  • Gaining a general overview on the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022
  • Familiarizing with the economy wide CO2 emissions analysis and results
  • Learning about the key IRA provisions for the electric sector, the transportation sector, the building sector, and the industry
  • Understanding sector analysis and results for electric sector, transportation sector, building sector and industry
  • Learning about the different ways each sector can potentially contribute to air pollution and CO2 emissions
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, " CO2 Emission Reductions from Changes in Electricity Generation and Use”, which is based on the EPA document “Assessment of Projected CO2 Emission Reductions from Changes in Electricity Generation and Use”, reference 430-R-23-004, dated September 2023.
