The U.S. Energy Information Administration has posted its estimate of 2011 annual energy-related carbon dioxide emissions by individual states.

The data break down each state’s emissions by fuel (coal, petroleum, and natural gas) and sector (commercial, electric power, residential, industrial and transportation). The data include a summary table with total energy-related CO2 by state beginning in 1990; a table with emissions by fuel in 2010; and a table with emissions by sector in 2011.

Detailed tables for individual states provide emissions by fuel and sector for data beginning in 1980. Documentation on the methodology used also is included.

Emissions tables for each state are posted on the EIA website. —J.A.

On Thursday, March 13, APPA’s Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program will hold a webinar on a recently completed grant, "Helping Your Key Accounts Achieve Energy Savings from Retrofitted Industrial Fume Hoods," from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Eastern time.

The basic design of fume hoods has gone largely unchanged for the past 60 years. On average, constant volume fume hoods use three times the amount of energy as a normal household fume hoods.

Speakers will be Robert Thompson of Pasadena Water & Power in California; Mathew Berbeeof the California Institute of Technology; and Charles Feltcher of Emcor Service/Mesa Energy Systems. They will discuss the results of Pasadena Water & Power’s recently completed project to evaluate the retrofitting of existing fume hoods and laboratory air-change controls in the constant volume laboratories at the California Institute of Technology. The fume hoods were retrofitted with automatic sash positioning systems that allow users to keep the hoods closed, saving a significant amount of energy.

The webinar is worth 0.2 continuing education units (CEUs) and /1.5 professional development-hour credits (PDHs).

The webinar will be offered at no charge to DEED program members. For members of APPA who are not members of DEED, the registration fee will be $89. For all others, the fee will be $179.  To find out if you are a DEED member, check the DEED section of the APPA website. For more information and to register, visit www.APPAAcademy.org under Webinars, or contact Michelle Zaccagnino at MZaccagnino@publicpower.org or 202/467-2942.
