Assessing the Multiple Benefits of Clean Energy: A Resource for States provides an overview of:
- The multiple benefits of clean energy and why it is important to think about them
- The importance of and approaches to calculating or estimating energy savings as the foundation for deriving multiple benefits
- The different tools and approaches available for estimating energy systems, environmental — specifically greenhouse gas, air, and health — and economic benefits across varying levels of rigor
- State analyses to illustrate the use of multiple benefits to promote clean energy
