Greg Schivley is a PhD candidate in Civil & Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, with 8 years of experience as an LCA consultant. His research is focused on environmental implications of transitions in electricity generation and transportation. Greg is a proponent of open-source models, and is working to make more of his code available on GitHub. He has a MS in Civil & Environmental Engineering from CMU and a BS in Physics from Allegheny College.


Electricity produced at new natural gas power plants results in lower direct emissions of CO2 than from new coal power plants, but methane emissions from production and delivery of the natural gas offsets some of the climate... [ view full abstract ]
