    Hidden Costs of Energy: Unpriced Consequences of Energy Production and Use



    Hidden Costs of Energy: Unpriced Consequences of Energy Production and Use
    Committee on Health, Environmental, and Other External Costs and Benefits of Energy Production and Consumption; National Research Council
    NAS Press | 2010 | ISBN: 0309146402 0309146410 9780309146418 9780309146401 | 507 pages | PDF | 6 MB


    This book defines and evaluates key external costs and benefits that are associated with the production, distribution, and use of energy, but are not reflected in market prices. The damage estimates presented are substantial and reflect damages from air pollution associated with electricity generation, motor vehicle transportation, and heat generation. The book also considers other effects not quantified in dollar amounts, such as damages from climate change, effects of some air pollutants such as mercury, and risks to national security.

    The book is informational tool for government policy makers, scientists, and economists in even the earliest stages of research and development on energy technologies.
