Client: Nebraska Wildlife Federation (NeWF)
Liz Stanton, PhD, Tyler Comings, and Anna Sommer (Sommer Energy, LLC)
On behalf of Nebraska Wildlife Federation, Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD and Senior Researcher Tyler Comings, together with Anna Sommer from Sommer Energy LLC, prepared an Applied Economics Clinic (AEC) report regarding Nebraska's energy future. Sommer Energy and AEC were asked by the Nebraska Wildlife Federation (NeWF) to produce a plan envisioning an electric grid in Nebraska that relies more heavily on cost-effective wind, solar, and energy efficiency. This report looks at how Nebraska can expand reliance on renewables and invest more in energy efficiency, ultimately reducing the overall cost of electricity in the state and lower its carbon dioxide emissions.
